Mission Statement

The EOP&S Program at West Valley College recognizes and accepts responsibility for extending opportunities for higher education to culturally diverse and underrepresented students who have been historically hindered by language, social and economic barriers. EOP&S is committed to ensuring access and support services to eligible students in order that they may participate in a wide spectrum of educational experiences designed to fulfill their academic needs, expand their human potential and enrich the quality of their lives. The intent of the EOP&S Program is to support the students in their preparation for the challenges of an ever increasingly technological and multicultural society.
