The Percy E. Sutton SEEK Program

October 23, 2011 | City College, CUNY Lecture Series

The Search for Education, Elevation and Knowledge program, also known as SEEK, has been renamed in honor of the late Percy E. Sutton, a prominent black political and business leader. Sutton, from Harlem, served as Manhattan borough president from 1966 to 1977, and also as a New York State Assemblyman, where he was a pivotal force behind the legislation that established the SEEK program-which offers unique and supportive educational opportunity to students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds-and is available at each of the senior colleges of CUNY.
