ABSTRACT:

The Deferred Matriculation of Students (DEMOS) collection contains program files, including course materials, grant materials, course evaluations, student applications, and assessments.  The DEMOS program was designed to help underprivileged students get a college education.  The program started students with a reduced course load until they felt caught up, and would then move them into a full course load.  The program was developed by history professor Rodney O. Davis.


HISTORICAL NOTE:

The Deferred Matriculation of Students (DEMOS) program was designed to take underprivileged students who may not usually have the chance to attend college and to bring them up to speed through a lighter course load of regular college classes.  They could keep the reduced load for up to two years, and at any point that they were ready for a full class load they could matriculate as any other student and be subjected to the same graduation requirements.  The program came into existence because of an education grant awarded to history professor Dr. Rodney O. Davis.
