The Educational Opportunity Program encourages its students to take part in advocacy, and in the issues affecting them, not only as students, but as state residents and as a member of the United States populace.
In an effort to help in the lobbying fight to keep fundings for EDP (EOP), EDP students, their families, and their friends are asked to contact their respective legislator and let their voice be heard on this very important issue and on any other issues that are of concern. If you are 18 years of age or older and a U.S. citizen and have not registered to vote, please complete this form.
