What is HEOP?
The Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) at Nazareth College is a comprehensive program that provides academic support to capable students who, due to lack of academic and financial resources, might not otherwise be able to study at Nazareth.
What is Excel?
Excel - a program unique to Nazareth College - was designed to facilitate access to Nazareth for students whose academics would qualify them for HEOP, but who do not meet that program’s criteria on residency and/or income.
Statement of Respect and Diversity
We, the Nazareth community, embrace both respect for the person and freedom of speech. The college promotes civility and denounces acts of hatred or intolerance. The free exchange of ideas is possible only when concepts, values, and viewpoints can be expressed and challenged in a manner that is neither threatening nor demeaning.
It is the policy of Nazareth College, in keeping with its efforts to foster a community in which the diversity of all members is respected, not to discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national or ethnic origin, sex, age, marital or veteran status, disability, carrier status, genetic predisposition or any other protected status. Respect for the dignity of all peoples is an essential part of the college’s tradition and mission, and its vision for the future.
