Educational Opportunity Programs

Where Students Are Always First!

Since our inception in 1969, the Educational Opportunity Programs have provided a range of services for underrepresented students at the University of Colorado Denver. For example, we provide mentoring, tutoring, leadership development, and information about various campus resources. We also conduct and sponsor cultural programming/education to help foster a diverse and inclusive campus for all students.

We are located in the North Classroom building, room 2012 at the Denver (Auraria) Campus. Please feel free to swing by, say hello to everybody, get to know us! We can help you with almost everything, from homework, to getting connections with other departments across the University system.


The University of Colorado Denver Educational Opportunity Programs (EOP) office provides services: a) to support underrepresented students and b) to promote a diverse and inclusive campus for all students, faculty, and staff.

EOP’s Vision 
We are:
  • a vital source for helping underrepresented students to persist, thrive, and graduate.
  • a home away from home that facilitates students’ academic, personal, and social development.
  • a recognized leader in offering activities to the campus community to enrich cultural awareness.
  • a valued partner with other units on campus that provide services for student success.
  • a bridge that connects students to the campus, external communities, and their future as alumni of the University of Colorado Denver.
