Conversation on the Arts & Culture

The Educational Opportunity Fund at Mercer County Community College welcomed me to their West Windsor, NJ campus as their Black History Month guest speaker.

I was pleased to be in conversation with Al-Lateef Farmer, the MCCC EOF Counselor, about the impact African-Americans have had on the arts and discuss the moments, movements and monumental figures that shaped the past year.

The Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) is a state funded program designed to increase access to higher education and to promote success for New Jersey residents who lack the financial and educational resources required for pursuit of post-secondary education.

 

The mission of Mercer's EOF program is to recruit students who, despite a background of historical poverty and poor academic preparation, exhibit the potential, motivation and desire to excel in a challenging and supportive educational environment. EOF will help those students develop skills and abilities that prepare them to persist toward associate degrees and/or certificates and to continue to achieve their academic, personal, and career goals.

Moreover, EOF will encourage and help students to become leaders on campus and in their communities and to join the workforce as capable, productive citizens who contribute to our cultural diverse and technological world.
