Eric Rangel started this petition to Cal State LA - Educational Opportunity Program

Student Academic Support (SAS) is designed to help EOP's first- and second-year students. This program is tailored towards providing Supplemental Instruction (SI) for entry level math courses such as Statistics and Pre-Calculus. Students in these courses are also supported by Peer Mentors who connect students to essential campus resources, host key learning strategy workshops, and of course just be that ear for students to talk with. 


First and foremost, we promote and create an environment that is safe and supportive so students can learn. And our mission is to ultimately help students become independent learners (1), master course content (2) and develop learning strategies and skills they can apply in future classes (3). 


We yield results the "old fashioned way" - hard work, dedication, and an emphasis on applying principles of proven research. EOP students have experienced many budget cuts over the last decade resulting in less support. However, we have continued to work diligently to maintain a commitment to quality training,  compassion, and relentless growth. More budget cuts will prevent us from helping our highest-needs students. Supporting EOP students means supporting us, the students who provide the direct services. So, we ask that you refrain from making deeper cuts.
