Welcome to EOPS-CARE

Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) is committed to meeting the unique educational needs of students hindered by language, social, and economic disadvantages. Eligible students may receive a wide variety of services including, but not limited to, individualized counseling, peer support, book vouchers, and academic and transfer assistance.

Our Mission/Vision Statement

Diablo Valley College EOPS recognizes systemic and societal disadvantages exist for our students. Therefore, as a student support program, our goal is to create a safe environment that is inclusive, supportive, and conducive to academic success. We continually strive to improve ourselves by bettering our own mindsets, practices, and the services we provide. EOPS is committed to transforming the experiences of our students and nurturing their growth.

In EOPS, we believe in our students’ potential and work to cultivate their success through collaborative and holistic support. We strive to build relationships, develop community, and equip students with the skills to be successful both here and beyond DVC. In connecting students to comprehensive student support services, we are the “go-to” resource to help students successfully navigate higher education.

To our students: We are honored to be a part of your journey and we are here for you!
