COMMUNITY is the heart of EOP. A first generation student is the first in their family to attend college. This new journey can feel unfamiliar, but our students rise to the challenge.

SUPPORT is the foundation of EOP. We advocate for our students because they are strong and resilient. Our students endure, share their experiences, and become support to others.

SUCCESS is our EOP students. Each student has their own definition of success. It is this diversity that brings value to our program. We believe in the power of education and its ability to foster success.
