Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program
Modeled on earlier programs including SEEK and College Discovery, the first unit of this program was established at the State University College in Buffalo, New York. In 1969, legislation establishing the HEOP program for independent colleges and universities in New York State was passed and during the 1970-71 academic year, formal provision had been made for SEEK in the CUNY system, EOP in the SUNY system, and HEOP in the independent colleges and universities of New York, and provided for their statewide coordination.
HEOP programs around the state were proud to celebrate the 50th anniversary of providing opportunity, access, and support for underserved populations in 2019, and today serve students at over 50 institutions from Long Island to Buffalo.
