Our History


The Syracuse Educational Opportunity Center was established in February 1969 by the State University of New York. The program was then known as SEEK (Search for Education, Elevation, and Knowledge) and was operated through a network or Cooperative College Centers. In 1973 the name was changed to Educational Opportunity center and administration was assumed by Morrisville State College.


During its history the EOC has grown in the number of students served and in the variety of programs offered. Today we offer nine major programs as well as employment services and computer access. Our mission remains the same: to provide qualified and motivated individuals with valuable education and career resources.
