Carter, Judith Corbett; Daraviras, Tracy
NADE Digest, v5 n1 p1-7 Fall 2010
The Brooklyn College, City University of New York (CUNY), Search for Education Elevation and Knowledge (SEEK) Program, a higher education opportunity program, provides special assistance to students who are entering college for the first time. SEEK students are from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds, and receive financial support as well as remedial and supplemental instruction, so that they will develop the skills needed to succeed in college. Success is measured by students' grade point averages, retention rates, and graduation rates. Elements of the SEEK model can be used by developmental educators in other academic support models and settings.
