EOP 50th Anniversary Conference

The CSU EOP’s 50th anniversary is a celebration of students who shaped California’s history through activism and social justice. It is an observance of those who made access to higher education a reality and an opportunity to recognize those who continue this movement today and for those who will lead us into the future.

EOP will continue to increase the access, academic excellence and retention of students who have been historically underserved through its ongoing tradition of changing lives through continuous innovation.

Call for Proposals

The conference planning committee looks forward to receiving proposals from presenters throughout the state—education professionals, student advocates and activists, staff, and students—that highlight access, student success, and innovation while we celebrate EOP’s historic contributions to higher education.

Preference will be given to proposals that recognize and celebrate the history of EOP; promote EOP’s continuous innovation in direct service to students; leverage technology for student success; or demonstrate excellence in support services and programs for diverse underrepresented student populations.


Years Of Changing Lives

Since 1969, EOP has been committed to proving educational access and opportunity for low-income and
educationally disadvantaged students throughout California, the majority of whom are first-generation college students.
