Using Resources Providing EAP Assistance

Collaborating with the Nearby CSU Campus in the EAP

Every CSU campus has an EAP Coordinator who is responsible for ensuring that the EAP resources developed by the CSU are readily available to schools, students, parents, and communities. The Coordinator typically holds meetings on the campus and at district sites to inform schools about college readiness and EAP resources, and available professional development.

Coordinators are pleased to speak to groups of administrators, counselors, teachers, students, and parents. Principals and school administrative teams should get to know their EAP Coordinator and learn what resources the Coordinator can make available, including how to find your results online.
