UBuffalo EOP

UBuffalo EOP UB EOP is the Educational Opportunity Program at the University at Buffalo. 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.
(6)

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.

A message from #UBuffalo President Satish Tripathi:

Over the past several weeks, the public has turned its attention to the trial of the former Minneapolis police officer accused of killing George Floyd. Now, with the prosecution and defense having rested, the concluding phase of the trial is set to begin.

Although we could have anticipated that these proceedings would prove emotionally draining for anyone following them, the deeply disturbing evidence and wrenching testimony have borne a heavier psychological toll on many of our Black students, colleagues, peers, friends and neighbors. Against the backdrop of a fervent racial justice reckoning, demonstrations over police brutality against Black and Brown Americans, a pandemic that has magnified social injustice, and oppression that has persisted from our country’s founding, I understand that some of you may be feeling as traumatized in the retelling of this terrible episode as when you first learned of it.

When I talk to our students, I hear anxiety, sadness and raw frustration over a system that continues to allow this violence to happen—most recently resulting in the heartbreaking deaths of Adam Toledo and Daunte Wright. When I meet with our faculty and staff, they echo the same sense of dismay over the power structures that perpetuate racism and brutality. What you tell me—directly and indirectly—is that you are demanding change. I hear the urgency in your voice, and I share your insistence that action is overdue.

As a scholarly community, we seek to create change through our research, our education and our engagement with the communities we serve. We all recognize that it will take great effort, innovation, compassion and ingenuity if we are to topple systemic racism and disrupt this cycle of senseless tragedy, and we embrace the challenge. Not for self-congratulatory purposes. Not because we view ourselves as uniquely positioned to answer this call. We do it because it is unequivocally the right thing to do.

I am constantly considering how our university community can most effectively serve as an agent of change. As I write to you, I acknowledge that there is so much to be done. Truly, our work is far from over. But we are making progress, and I am proud of the action we have taken thus far. It shows me that, when we approach this task in solidarity, with a mandate to uproot discrimination and intolerance, we can help cultivate, in the words of Martin Luther King Jr., “a society at peace with itself—a society that can live with its conscience.”

I hope our ongoing endeavors to achieve social justice instill in you a sense of hope that we are moving toward a more equitable and inclusive society. I also hope our work provides you with a measure of optimism for a brighter, more just future—for UB, and for our world.

If you are in need of emotional support at this time, if you would like to join in a discussion about the trial, or if you are seeking ways to help your students process this consequential moment, we have resources for everyone in our UB community.

Allow me to emphasize that we are a community that is stronger by virtue of our diverse viewpoints, backgrounds and identities. Although not all of us carry the trauma of systemic racism, it is my greatest wish that we stand together in the effort to overcome it. This commitment is core to our identity as a scholarly community. It is etched into our university’s mission. We have no intention, or desire, to pay lip service to the ideals of social justice. Throughout UB’s 175-year history, we have always channeled our ideas into action in service of the greater good.

That is our unifying constant. And that will be the case long after the verdict is read in the trial of Derek Chauvin—indeed, for as long as it takes.

Sincerely,

Satish K. Tripathi
President

The University at Buffalo is planning to return to campus this fall, offering educational and research programs under a “modified in-person” format.

The plan, which centers on a mix of in-person instruction and online courses, will allow UB to deliver an excellent and impactful university experience while protecting the health and safety of the campus community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This decision will preserve our mission as a place-based, public research institution, while providing us needed flexibility to continue caring for our campus community and providing the best possible educational experience for our students.”
--- President Satish K. Tripathi and Provost A. Scott Weber

UB leaders will provide additional details to students, faculty, staff and members of the community as plans for the fall semester are finalized and health guidelines and protocols are implemented in response to the pandemic.

All determinations about the fall semester and a phased return of employees will align with Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s guidelines for reopening the state, including Western New York’s progress pursuant to the state’s four-phased regional benchmarks.
