Every member of our community is a stakeholder and, thus, very important to the planning processes at Chabot College, at Las Positas College, and at the District level. At the end of this 2020 comprehensive planning process, we will have three (3) plans that will guide the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District into the future, from 2021-2026, namely:
- Chabot College Educational Master Plan (EMP)
- Las Positas College Educational Master Plan (EMP)
- Chabot-Las Positas Community College District Strategic Plan (DSP)
The strength of each of these plans will be based largely on the degree to which we have had significant participation by our internal and external stakeholders.
The integrated planning graphic found here highlights the key role of stakeholders in planning overall. The methods we are using to gather stakeholders’ input and recommendations include focus groups, surveys, community forums, and interviews. And the “timeline” banner at the bottom of this page reveals when stakeholders will have additional opportunities to participate.
