    About SEEK

    Established in 1965, The Percy Ellis Sutton Search for Education, Elevation and Knowledge Program (SEEK) is a higher education opportunity program offered in the senior colleges of the City University of New York (CUNY). Students are admitted into SEEK regardless of age, sex, sexual orientation, race, disability, or creed.

    SEEK's primary mission is to assist in providing equality of higher education to students who otherwise would not have such access. SEEK provides comprehensive academic, financial, and social supports to assist capable students who otherwise might not be able to attend college due to their educational and financial circumstances.  The effort is intended to increase the level of education, social capital, and workforce expertise within our community. The major objectives are as follows:

    • To assist selected students with specifically defined educational and economic needs to achieve a high quality college education and expand their social and career capabilities.
    • To provide a range of intensive support services including supplemental instruction, counseling, and enhanced financial aid to enable students to bridge the gap between remedial programs and the regular college curriculum.
    • To develop, utilize, and demonstrate innovative educational techniques that will enable capable students to overcome the challenges of under-preparation and other relevant disadvantages with the goal of obtaining a college education.
