The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) in the California State Universities supports the success of students from low income family backgrounds and is designed to break the cycle of poverty. EOP at Sonoma State serves about 500 students who have overcome tremendous odds to be the first in their families to attend college. Most carry a full load of classes, are employed to help pay for their education and take out significant loans since their families do not have resources to contribute to their education.
EOP students have a high rate of community service and are strongly motivated to give back to others in need. Many of these inspiring students also achieve academic excellence, distinguish themselves as leaders and provide powerful role models of success to youth in low income communities. EOP students are encouraged to go on to graduate programs and subsequently often work to give help and hope to communities across California as teachers, social workers, healthcare professionals and a myriad of other professions.
