Welcome to EOPS

The EOPS Vision


EOPS students and staff are passionate

change‐agents who thrive as they create and nurture intentional, academic partnerships–partnerships that inspire people to choose trust over fear, equity over injustice, responsibility over victimhood, hope over apathy, self‐honesty over competition, and link personal success to the success of the greater good.



The EOPS Mission

EOPS is a state-funded, student support service program established to promote the enrollment, retention, persistence, and success (i.e., transfer, degrees, certificates) of students from low-income, underrepresented backgrounds in higher education by offering services that are above, beyond, and in addition to services available to all Los Medanos College students.


Through EOPS and CARE, eligible students receive supplemental educational support services, such as assistance developing educational plans, personal counseling, peer support, academic progress support, and guidance in developing effective academic networks. In addition, grants and allowances for transportation, books, and supplies are provided to enhance the retention, persistence, graduation and transfer rates of EOPS students.


For more information, visit the office in CC-257 (below cafeteria), or contact us at (925) 439-2181, ext. 3138.
