Subject

The Special Educational Opportunities Program At the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Description

This edition of the Campus Report explains the purposes and goals of Project 500. It was published shortly after the events at the Union. Because of the date, it can be seen that regardless of the incident, the University of Illinois was hopeful for success with Project 500. This Campus Report describes the Special Educational Opportunities Program as an experiment to bring in more disadvantaged students. 565 accepted admission and enrolled. Many of these students were admitted even though their class ranks and GPAs did not meet the minimum requirement although they had to show some proof of academic excellence. Once the semester started, they were able to take part in programs including tutoring services.
