MISSION STATEMENT

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) values and demonstrates  multiculturalism and inclusiveness. 

Established by the California Legislature in 1969, our Mission is to support the access, retention, and graduation of first generation college students from historically low income and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. 

We provide a comprehensive range of services designed to foster retention and graduation and to empower our students to become educated and engaged community leaders.

EOP Staff and students work together to create an environment which enhances an appreciation of diversity and recognizes the innate value of all human beings and their natural ability and desire to learn.

Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) empowers Sonoma State students to be architects of their own futures through educational, career, and life planning.

We are committed to excellence in advising, teaching, and mentoring to address the needs of the whole student. We work in collaboration with the larger university community to provide an environment in which students are respected and diversity is valued.
