I am an Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) student. How will the EOP Office support me?
The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) program will offer advising, tutoring and support to our students remotely.
SUNY has provided incoming EOP students with laptops. Continuing students were provided either with a campus or SUNY loaner laptop in the spring, as requested.
EOP students will be given priority for student housing in the fall and will therefore have access to on-campus technology resources.
EOP counseling and advising will continue using WebEx and Starfish as the key platforms to advise our students. In-person counseling will be limited to specific student cases and only when a student and advisor are following all the safety protocols instituted by the College. Tutoring will be provided remotely through Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.
EOP instituted a WebEx drop-in time in spring 2020 to allow students to get personal attention without an appointment. This practice was very successful and will continue in fall 2020.
