EOP BI-ANNUAL CONFERENCE
In 1968, without any SUNY funding, Eddie Bell was appointed founding director of Project A, the precursor of the Educational Opportunity Program. Project A’s 19 students were brought to campus during summer; the precursor to the EOP Summer Institute. The following year, Project A’s name was changed to EOP and it became an official SUNY New Paltz program with SUNY funding. EOP leadership was transferred to newly hired Assoc. Dean of Students, Rufus Newlin. From 1970-71, Purnell Kirkland served as the full-time director of EOP.
