Note from the Director

wWelcome to the Educational Opportunity Program at Marquette University. This year EOP is celebrating fifty years of providing educational access and opportunities to deserving middle school, high school and Marquette University students. We take pride in providing high touch academic services to students throughout the educational pipeline. The Ignatian Value of Cura Personalis-Care for the Whole Person is the core of what we do in EOP. We provide an environment in which students can thrive academically, professionally, emotionally and socially.

EOP consists of five programs designed to assist students as they progress through from middle and high school through graduate education. Our programs are designed to assist current Marquette students (Student Support Services and the McNair Scholars Program), and middle and high school students (Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math and Science, and Educational Talent Search). We offer leadership opportunities for students as well as a place to study, work on group projects, and computer labs!

I am proud of our EOP students and dedicated staff members. Please take some time to explore our website to learn more about ways EOP can help dreams become reality!
