Extended Opportunity Programs & Services (EOPS)

EOPS History and Mission

Diverse University Students

EOPS History  
The Extended Opportunity Program and Services (EOPS) Program was legislatively mandated in 1969 with the passage of SB 164 (Alquist). This "social reform" legislation encouraged the California Community Colleges to develop programs and services designed to meet the educational needs of [all] students handicapped by "language, social and economic disadvantages," these programs and services to be "over, above, and in addition to those regularly offered at the college," and which "encourage student growth, development, and successful participation" in collegiate life. The Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) Program (a multi-agency program sponsored by the State of California Department of Social Services, the State Employment Development Department and the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges), was established in 1982 as a supplemental component of EOPS to provide educational support services and activities for the academically underprepared, welfare-dependent, single head-of-household population.
The mission of the EOPS/CARE program(s) at Chabot College is to enhance student success by providing "over and above" services to students with socio-economic and academic barriers to their education.
Our goal is to increase opportunities for underrepresented students to complete a certificate, AA/AS degree and/or transfer to four year colleges and universities.  This is accomplished by providing a supportive environment with committed faculty and staff who work together as a team to assist students in reaching their educational goals.
