EOPS & CARE

About Our Program

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.

Mission Statement

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.

Our Values

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.

What Students Say

The EOPS program has provided me with the resources and support that will help me succeed academically.

Initially, I thought I would be on my own when it came to college, however, I was proven wrong when I joined EOPS.

- Sandra R, Psychology Major

It has also taught me that college can be a friendly environment.

Initially, I thought I would be on my own when it came to college, however, I was proven wrong when I joined EOPS.

Thanks to the EOPS program I have made great friends, and developed the confidence to seek additional information and support from other resources on campus.
