Biographical Note:

Margaret Wynne Fox was an Assistant Professor in the Oregon State University Educational Opportunities Program from 1982 until her retirement in 2007. Fox earned a BS degree from Georgia Southern College in 1971 and her MEd and PhD degrees from Oregon State University in 1983 and 1992. Her doctoral dissertation used the Educational Opportunities Program as a case study for evaluating the instructional component of developmental education programs.

The Educational Opportunities Program was created at Oregon State University in 1969 to provide support for non-traditional students. These include students of color, older than average students, students with disabilities, single parents, low-income students, and students who have been rurally isolated. The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) is a federally-funded program, established in 1988, to assist students from families of migrant and seasonal farm and forestry workers during the first year of college with enrollment, advising, and financial support.
