SEOP

Description

This publication of Student Affairs includes an explanation of Project 500 and an interview with Clarence Shelley, the project director for SEOP. Given the nature of the questions, there were many thoughts about the quality of the program. In the interview Shelley clarifies that Project 500 students would not be receiving a "watered-down" education nor would they be required to take special classes, but that opportunity was available if needed. Shelley used the questions to clarify that these students were not accepted in place of anyone else. He also said that this program addresses problems for a specific group similar to foreign students or physically handicapped students so this form of support was not new to the University.
