The mission of the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), at Binghamton University, is to enroll students who meet academic and financial guidelines, as well as provide advocacy for those students through graduation and beyond. EOP's tutorial component is designed to provide EOP students with group and private tutoring, a learning environment designed for individual and group studying, as well as a variety of resources including textbook and calculator rentals, television sets for projection, glass erase boards, computers, printers, and textbooks.
The front desk manager is the face of EOP's tutorial component and of the EOP/SSS tutorial center. With that, however, comes numerous roles and responsibilities. First, and foremost, the front desk manager is responsible for knowing and enforcing all the components, rules, and regulations of the tutorial center. Secondly, the front desk managers are responsible for greeting, welcoming, and directing all visitors. Thirdly, the front desk managers are responsible for maintaining a conducive learning environment for visitors. This includes enforcing noise levels, making sure that the center stays clean, and ensuring the safety of those in the center by being a good bystander.
