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 from a wide variety of backgrounds. Bard Educational Opportunity Programs recognizes that students with identities historically under-represented in higher education 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.  The BEOP Office works closely with HEOP, BOP, ECO, and Posse Scholars (from Atlanta and New Orleans) on campus.  To learn more about Posse, visit
