Educational Opportunity Program

History, Community, Pride

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) emerged from the Civil Rights Movement of the late 1960s as a response to the call for access and equity in higher education. As a result of this hard fought, student-led campaign, there is an EOP at all 23 California State University campuses today to provide support services for low income, first generation students from historically disadvantaged backgrounds.

Since the passage of Senate Bill 1072 (the Harmer Bill), in April 1969, EOP has made a lasting impact in the lives of thousands of students who have graduated from the CSU. Through its commitment to providing access and innovative support services to thousands of underrepresented students each year, EOP remains a critical component of the California State University system.
