Educational Opportunities Program Records, 1983-1999

Historical Note:

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 their first year of college with enrollment, advising, and financial support. Those admitted to CAMP must show that their parents or legal guardians have worked a minimum of 75 days in the past 24 months in migrant or seasonal work.
