A Message from the Executive Director

Dear EOP Aggies,

Greetings from the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)! We are delighted to have you as part of the EOP family. As a UC Davis student, you have the opportunity to study and thrive in an exciting and rich learning environment at one of the top public universities in the country. EOP is here to help you succeed on your journey. Our goal is to create a supportive community in which you can get advice, seek guidance and develop a network of friends and supporters during your undergraduate experience. We are committed to cultivating an inclusive community for first generation students at UC Davis.

EOP staff and Peer Advising Counselors are dedicated to your success and growth. During your time at UC Davis, you may encounter challenges, but you will be surrounded by caring peers and professionals ready to treat you like family and provide the tools you need to be successful. I encourage you to utilize campus resources and take advantage of the enrichment opportunities available to you. Whether through classes, community building events, success coaching or other co-curricular supports, we are here to make your experience meaningful and the best it can be.

Please stop by the EOP Cottage to meet the staff and engage with the community! Best wishes for a successful and enjoyable quarter.

Arnette Bates, Executive Director, C.O.S.S
