It is the mission of the Educational Opportunity Programs department to provide opportunities for low-income and potential first generation college students to realize their academic potential; to develop the skills necessary to be successful in their post-secondary pursuits; and to generate for each student a healthier standard of living. We strive to attain this goal while recognizing the missions of Georgia Southern University and the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management therein.
We are committed to accomplishing our mission while adhering to the expectations of the federal TRiO programs to provide educational opportunities and resources for our students. It is our sincere belief that within every individual lays a potential for success, which needs to be recognized and challenged. Our vision is to provide every participant with the information, assistance, and motivation needed to reach their full educational potential, to excel in a chosen career, and to participate actively as a citizen.
The Federal TRiO programs are established by the US Congress and funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965.
