This briefing paper describes a new U.S. Office of Education program--the Educational Opportunity Center (EOC). The services available through this program include professional counseling, information on student financial aid and advice on academic and career possibilities. Authorized under the Educational Amendments of 1972, the Educational Opportunity Centers focus educational services upon certain geographical areas that have major concentrations of low-income or disadvantaged persons. The Centers coordinate a variety of available educational resources in one place, making it possible to help a larger number of persons. The report lists the 12 Centers, describes who can benefit from the facilities and services, and delineates the services provided at three of the Centers. (Author)
