The Student Resource Center/EOP Satellite (SRC/EOP) is a comprehensive effort designed to assist students who are enrolled in the Mike Curb College of Arts, Media, and Communication (MCCAMC) at California State University, Northridge. In maintaining the vision of further developing a community of talented students, the college is committed to providing services to students to facilitate their success within the majors of:
The center also serves as a satellite office of the Educational Opportunity Programs (EOP), which supports, advocates and facilitates the mission of CSUN and EOP by providing holistic support services that promote and encourage first-generation, historically low-income and historically educationally disadvantaged students to seek higher educational opportunities specifically at CSUN. The SRC/EOP, in coordination with the college departments, seeks to build a network in which students can benefit from the strengths and talents of faculty, staff and peers. The Center is designed to enhance the transition, retention and graduation of students who are majoring in the college’s academic departments. It provides a variety of academic support services, which include, but are not limited to, holistic academic advisement and counseling, guidance and information, personal support and multicultural activities to maintain a cohesive student-centered environment to help students realize their educational goals. Students gain a greater understanding of community and enrich their lives by availing themselves of these opportunities while at CSUN. The Student Resource Center/EOP Satellite considers each student as an individual with a unique set of experiences, talents, ideas, and life and career goals. As such, it recognizes that advisement is a holistic process having the mission of assisting students to identify and clarify goals, to plan and monitor academic progress, and to advance toward graduation. Some of the holistic support services that are available via the Center for EOP and other college student populations during peak advisement periods are (refer to the MCCAMC Advisement Grid available on the website):
