Partnering with IT to help disadvantaged students achieve academic success
Janet H. Clarke (Stony Brook University)
This presentation will describe how the Stony Brook University Libraries instruction program partnered with another student support service (student computing office) to nurture a relationship with the Educational Opportunities Program over several years to provide their students with the library research and computer skills they need to succeed in college. EOP is a state-funded program aimed at economically disadvantaged students whose high school education has not fully prepared them for college success.
