EOPS Summer Institute has changed! We are currently recruiting students!

Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) at DVC is recruiting for our annual Summer Institute College Bridge program! This is a great opportunity for new high school graduates to get a head start on college-readiness, by taking a 3-week summer course at DVC.

Program Theme of Study: Socialization

Through a sociology & social justice lens, students will study curriculum that focuses on socialization- the process of how people internalize norms and attitudes of human behavior that are considered "acceptable by society."

Instruction will take place in a 2 unit, sociology/counseling & career hybrid course. Curricular content will include students analyzing and unpacking how the process of socialization has affected them academically, ethnically/racially, culturally, socio-economically, etc.

In preparation for a fall college start, students will sharpen their critical thinking and writing skills. They will also discover college major & career paths related to the areas of social sciences, human services, education and more!
