Las Positas, Chabot colleges accredited again

Report commends Las Positas for its 'quality of instruction'

The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges has reaffirmed the accreditation for Las Positas College in Livermore and its sister campus Chabot College in Hayward for the next six years.

The accreditation received by the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District officials was part of the year-long process where both colleges conducted extensive self-studies and prepared written reports for the commission.

Accreditation team members visited both campuses and met with faculty, staff and students.

"The reaffirmation of our accreditation is a reflection of our self-inquiry process as a college," said Dr. DeRionne Pollard, Las Positas College president. "The report commends Las Positas for our quality of instruction and our commitment to student success. We are delighted with the results."

Copies of the reports are available through the college websites ( and as well as the district website ( and in the college libraries. To learn more, call Laura Weaver, 485-5215.
