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.
