University Educational Outreach Center

The University Educational Outreach Center (EOC) focuses on building more equitable pathways to college, including the potential to enroll at the University of Pittsburgh or other selective colleges and universities through Pitt’s own academic outreach programs and collaborations with community stakeholders to develop future programs. 

Flagship EOC programs include the college preparatory program INVESTING NOW, the Pittsburgh Admissions Collaboration, and Pittsburgh Public Scholars.
