Welcome to the Educational Opportunity Program

EOP, a federally funded TRiO program, is an academic program that motivates and enables low-income and first generation students, whose parents do not have a baccalaureate degree, to enter and succeed in higher education.


EOP's move to Coughlin Hall a success!

EOP has moved to the 2nd and 3rd floors of Coughlin Hall which is located just south of Marquette Hall. Please feel free to stop in and have a look at our amazing updated space!
