The Early Academic outreach program was established in 1976 by the University of California to increase the number of students who have the opportunity to achieve a postsecondary education. Through a series of educational partnerships between school districts, school sites, and community organizations, EAOP designs, develops, and implements academic enrichment strategies to increase the college going rates of the schools it serves.
The UA Office of Early Academic Outreach works in the community to increase the number of ethnic minority, low-income and first-generation college-bound students. One program is Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement, or MESA, where students participate in hands-on activities and team competitions. Recently, UA President Eugene G. Sander met with members of EAO as well as a soon-to-be UA graduate who competed in MESA during high school. For more information please visit http://startnow.arizona.edu/

Inspired by the UCLA People of Color Tour, this video was created in Spring 2014 in Spoken Word and Community Partnerships, a UCLA class in the Department of World Arts & Cultures/Dance, to add to the discussion and tell important counter narratives. The text from the original tour for this site reads: "The Student Activities Center (SAC) was rebuilt in 2004 out of what was formerly the Men's Gym. Students initiated this development by running a referendum in the 2000 student elections that demanded the creation of a student fee, later called SPARC, which would help to renovate the Student Activities Center as well as the Wooden Center. Today, SAC houses the Student Retention Center (SRC), the Student Initiated Access Center (SIAC), the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Student Resou...

For some high school students, summer is a time for travel, camping and lying on the beach. But for others, it's the perfect opportunity to study an HIV coreceptor or a nuclear pore protein. Rockefeller University's Science Outreach Program can help with that. Director Ted Scovell works to give new generations of young scientists access to the facilities — and mentors — that can take them well beyond the frogs and earthworms of their high school classrooms.
