This September marks 50 years that EOPS was established through Senate Bill 164. The legislation created a means for the California Community Colleges to truly serve all Californians by opening the door to the low income and educationally disadvantaged populations. At the September 3rd SMC Board of Trustees meeting, the board unanimously approved a resolution acknowledging EOPS on the milestone and designating September 2019 as EOPS Month!
In commemoration, Santa Monica College EOPS invites you to our celebration!
Stop by when you can for some ice cream, the unveiling of the “I AM EOPS” poster campaign and tours of our new office in the beautiful new Student Services Center.
In addition, EOPS is working with the Santa Monica College Foundation to raise funds for the newly established EOPS Scholarship Fund: https://santamonicacollegefoundation.org/eops.
Contributions of any amount will go a long way in recognizing hard-working EOPS students and assist them in reaching their educational goals.
Thank you SMC for the continued support of EOPS!
