Welcome to Bard Educational Opportunity Programs (BEOP)
"Strive to Thrive" The philosophy of Bard Educational Opportunity Programs remains consistent with the College's desire for diversity to be part of the learning experience of all students, regardless of race, creed, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, or religion. Bard Educational Opportunity Programs recognizes that students from a variety of backgrounds seek to attain a rigorous liberal arts education and often need support to realize this aim. Such students bring to the College a wealth of knowledge and insight not necessarily gained in the classroom. Our scholars benefit from the Bard experience, just as Bard benefits from their presence.
