Educational Master Planning (EMP) Process

Published May 2nd, 2016 in College News

At the heart of this data-driven review and planning effort is the intended outcome of student access and improving student success. The District has engaged the services of the Collaborative Brian Trust, a California-based firm providing technical support services to higher education and the private sector, to support development of the four colleges’ EMPs. A comprehensive internal and external scan is underway. Data analysis and the development of College Goals and Objectives will serve as a blueprint to be used in the Integrated Planning and Budgeting process at each college. The resulting four EMPs will be developed in alignment with the 2015 Peralta District Strategic Plan and its annual Strategic Goals and Objectives. Each College’s Educational Master Plan will be customized to its student population and service area, aligning resources to maximize student access and success. Both current and future needs of the region over the next five years will be considered. The EMP project will conclude Summer 2016.

College of Alameda A-Tech Student Richard Saeparn Wins Ozzie Day Scholarship

Published April 18th, 2016 in College News

Since he was used to 12 hour days in the Air Force, Richard jumped full steam into the A-Tech Program and often attended classes 9 hours a day, five days a week. Not only was he taking classes, but for most of the last two years, he has worked as a student aide to help other students! And all the while, he has maintained his Air Force Reserve status by continuing his Air Force training and certifications. He is currently looking at opportunities with Honda, Toyota or Tesla when he graduates in May.

The Ozzie Day Scholarship is a $500 scholarship, which is awarded by the A-Tech Department each semester to the student with the highest grade point average and the most units in the A-Tech Program. The scholarship was set up in memory of Ozzie Day, the founder of Automotive Engineering and a long-time member of the COA Automotive Advisory Committee.
