Mission for Early Academic Outreach Program

EAOP contributes to the University of California's Student Academic Preparation and Educational Partnerships (SAPEP) mission to raise student achievement and close achievement gaps. The vision of UC's SAPEP programs is to strengthen California's educational system in ways that will promote a vibrant economy by building a highly skilled and creative workforce.

SAPEP Mission
    The goal of Student Academic Preparation and Educational Partnerships (SAPEP) is to work in partnership with K-12, the business sector, community organization and other institutions of higher education to raise student achievement levels generally and to close achievement gaps between groups of students throughout the K-20 pipeline so that a higher proportion of California's young people, including those who are first-generation, socioeconomically disadvantaged and English-language learners, are prepared for post-secondary education, pursue graduate and professional school opportunities and/or achieve success in the workplace.
