Vision Statement

The Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Program assists students from educationally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds from Middlesex County in their pursuit of a college degree. EOF is an innovative academic support program that offers counseling, educational and career advising, tutoring support, and on-going personal development. The success of EOF students is directly linked to the commitment of staff/faculty and students’ motivation. EOF plays a central role in increasing the diversity of students participating in postsecondary education and contributes to the preparation of New Jersey's citizens as they enter the county’s and state’s skilled workforce.
