Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)

Every five years, Daemen College applies to the New York State Education Department for competitive renewal of its Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program. 

In July 2014, Daemen’s program was again renewed and fully funded at over $360,000 per year.  Daemen College also contributes funding to the program.

The Arthur O. Eve HEOP program serves 20 new students per year and a total of 61 students annually. 

The HEOP has been on the Daemen campus since January 1970, providing critical resources for a supportive educational experience to students who demonstrate promise but are financially and educationally disadvantaged. 

The HEOP has a magnifying effect; it has inspired the Vision for Success and Accelerated Academic Achievement programs as well as numerous interventions inaugurated through the College’s U.S. Department of Education Title III grant.

In Daemen, I took ESL classes to improve my English. I worked at Canavan Desk and made a lot of friends over there. I participated in a Business dinner with my professors. I was invited to join a family party by my professors. During the weekends, I often take the school shuttle to the shopping mall. These experiences helped me to ease into the American-style of study, life, and business.
