Winter Quarter 2020 Office Hours
In 1972, a number of students expressed their concern for the need to provide a support element to supplement EOP counseling. At that time, two of the student leaders, Nate Allen (now a practicing physician in Sacramento and Los Angeles) and Shelton Yip (administrator of Special Education Service in Sacramento) wrote a proposal, which was designed to provide academic, personal and social support to EOP students. This proposal was subsequently approved by the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs (Thomas Dutton) and was targeted for implementation in the summer of 1972.
The PAC Program was incorporated into the Intercultural Center from 1973 to 1978. The primary focus of the Intercultural Center was to organize and implement educational and cultural awareness programs for the campus community as well as academic support for EOP students. The PAC staff served as the primary component of the Intercultural Center, which provided support for the EOP students. The PAC Program marked the first peer team that employed students from diverse cultural backgrounds.
In 1978, the Intercultural Center was reorganized and became the EOP Information Office. The program is a thriving unit under the Office of Educational Opportunity and Enrichment Services, after moving from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) in 2006. The primary purpose of the EOP Information Office is to serve as the hub for EOP students, providing academic support and retention services to help students achieve their educational goals.
Over the years, the EOP Information Office expanded to offer additional services, which include the organization and implementation of orientation programs, cultural and social awareness programs, informational workshops, student workload assignments, services for former foster youth, and the creation of linkages between EOP and other campus departments.
