"Will Everyman Destroy the University?"
In this article, CUNY’s new Vice Chancellor Timothy Healy writes of SEEK as both a practical and theoretical model for open admissions. He cites the success of the program--intended to improve higher education access for the underserved--as proof to skeptical community leaders that the newly expanded CUNY would not become a revolving door that further victimized disadvantaged black and Latino students. In Healy’s view, without “SEEK the idea of open admissions would never have been born [and] without SEEK the operation could well fail.”
Short for "Search for Education, Elevation, and Knowledge," SEEK was formally established in 1966 as a CUNY-wide program to assist disadvantaged students who might otherwise lack the opportunity to study at a four-year college.
