Project GO (Generating Opportunities), implemented during the 1968-1969 academic year at Colorado State University, was developed to identify and encourage Black and Hispanic economically disadvantaged students to continue their education beyond high school and to provide these students with financial aid and academic support at CSU. The project emphasized recruitment and retention and was an end result of civil rights protests going on at the time. The program transitioned to individual ethnic student groups in the mid to late 1970s. The archival collection, which is presented in its entirety here, includes meeting summaries, memos, program information, and policies.
