What is EOPS?
EOPS stands for Extended Opportunity Program & Services. It was legislated more than 50 years ago to attract and to assure that eligible students, who are economically and educationally vulnerable, are provided the additional support needed to attain a college education. EOPS continues to provide support services that help to relieve financial expenses, while also providing a system of caring and belonging with accountability from start to finish.
Driven by a legacy of equity and social justice, we provide a personalized connection for our students so they have the navigational capital to achieve academic success. We enhance the student experience by offering solution-based practices. We provide over and above services aimed to encourage, support, and empower students from entry to completion.
Innovative Technology: We apply the use of technology to improve our operations and workflow.
Accountability: We hold ourselves accountable toward meeting EOPS implementation guidelines.
Navigating: We inform and guide students through various campus resources to promote awareness and to build self-advocacy skills that will navigate Foothill College and transition into the 4-year college system and/or their future career.
Specialized Attention: We provide personalized services to meet students’ individual and unique needs.
Joyful: We promote a friendly, joyful environment filled with compassion for each other and our students.
Collegial: We work in a supportive and trusting, team-based environment that allows for collegial decision-making.
Innovation: We provide a safe space that encourages innovation and experimentation of ideas.
