The Educational Opportunity Program

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at the University of California, Davis began in 1968. The program offers an array of services to help students adapt both academically and socially to the University setting and achieve their educational and personal goals. The transition from high school or community college to a large research university can be overwhelming. EOP provides a caring and supportive environment for students to meet with peer and professional advisers and network with other students. Two staff advisers and a group of 18 peer advising counselors, in conjunction with other campus units, work together to offer students the following services and activities.Please stop by the EOP Cottage by South Hall to meet our friendly staff and peers. The office is open from 9-4 Mondays-Thursdays and 9-3 Fridays. No appointment is necessary.
