UB EOP UB EOP is the Educational Opportunity Program at the University at Buffalo.
(5)

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) provides an avenue for admission and means of support for talented students who have not reached their full academic potential due to barriers in their educational, economic, or personal background. Applicants must be New York State residents who qualify under EOP financial eligibility guidelines. EOP Students differ from other students only in the number and scope of services available to them. They attend the same classes, live in the same residence halls, participate in the same extracurricular activities, have access to the same resource, and pursue the same careers as other university students. The EOP is regarded as one of the most successful program of its type in the nation. Since its inception over 30 years ago, the Educational Opportunity Program at the University at Buffalo along with other programs in colleges and universities across New York State have graduated over 50,000 students. Although most EOP graduates begin their careers immediately after graduation, many continue their studies in Masters, Doctoral and Professional Programs across New York State.

Mission: CPMC is directly involved in UB’s mission to: 1. Increase access and opportunity 2. Support orientation and first year student services 3. Enhance academic support and retention to graduation 4. Offer academic enrichment and undergraduate research 5. Support community involvement and community service 6. Prepare for and motivate graduate study

University at Buffalo

Dear university community:

To begin, I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to all of you for helping make a memorable virtual commencement celebration for the University at Buffalo’s Class of 2020. Although it was not how we had envisioned recognizing our graduates at the beginning of the academic year, I was so inspired to see our campus community bringing your creative energy and innovative spirit to UB’s time-honored tradition.

On the heels of commencement, we received the news that Governor Cuomo had approved Western New York to begin Phase 1 of our region’s reopening. While the region still has health benchmarks to reach, the University at Buffalo is in parallel preparing for an eventual phased return to campus.

As we have previously communicated, we have put into place a comprehensive campus planning structure for the 2020-2021 academic year. We are intentionally preparing for the challenges that lie ahead in the domains of public health, university finances, enrollment, academic continuity, research and our overall student experience. With this planning structure as our guide, and under Provost Weber’s leadership, we are developing numerous protocols to prepare for a phased return to campus. This preparation includes a full array of measures to ensure the health and safety of every member of our campus community.

As we envision a phased return of employees to campus prior to the start of the 2020-2021 academic year, it is my hope that such a return will begin in the very near future, including resuming research that has been put on hold. We anticipate that decisions related to the fall 2020 semester will be made and communicated to the campus community in mid- to late June. It is important to note that all determinations about a phased return of employees and the fall 2020 semester will align with the Governor’s Executive Orders—including Western New York’s progress pursuant to the state’s Phase 1-4 regional benchmarks.

Finally, I would like to recognize the resilience and adaptability of our faculty, staff and students throughout the spring semester and as we move into #UBuffalo's summer session. I would also like to acknowledge your patience and understanding as we continue to negotiate this evolving situation. Throughout, we are here to support you in your academic, research, scholarly and professional endeavors.

Sincerely,

Satish K. Tripathi
President

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) provides a Summer Bridge experience to assist with the transition to our University. Participation in this program is mandatory in order to be fully accepted into the EOP program. Since our program will be delivered virtually, we will work to ensure that each student is accommodated appropriately with the necessary equipment.

During the program participants can expect to be acclimated to the rigor and demands of academic life as a UB student. The program will include (but is not limited to) credit-bearing course offerings and workshops to strengthen academic and personal wellness skills. Students will also enjoy opportunities to engage interactively with peers and UB faculty/staff within this online format.

The summer program will take place July 5 through Aug. 1, 2020.

Fall Semester Messaging


UB is getting ready for the fall semester: The university is planning for scenarios ranging from a full return to on-campus instruction, to continuing distance learning, to modified in-person instruction in a safe campus environment.

The university will provide regular updates – and gather feedback from students, faculty and staff – as we monitor the pandemic and plan for the fall semester.

UB’s overall goal is to deliver the best educational and research programs possible while protecting the health and safety of the university community.

UB will return to normal operations as soon as it is possible, with our primary objective being the protection of the health and safety of the university community.

Join us as we celebrate and give honor to Black History during the month of February 2020.

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.

The retreat includes Thursday lunch and dinner, Friday breakfast and lunch, snacks, transportation, lodging, program materials and supplies.
