Welcome to the home of the Office of Instruction for College of Alameda. Working closely with faculty, our office is responsible for the continual improvement and overall quality and integrity of the instructional programs for COA. We offer a wide variety of certificates and degrees in academic and Career & Technical Education programs, many of which are unique to our local economy.

Along with helping to keep our curriculum and programs current, we lead the college with the development and implementation of the Strategic Plan, our Self-Evaluation and Accreditation process, the Educational Master plan; preparing the schedule of courses, the College catalog and other publications. In close cooperation with Student Services we promote effective student-centered learning and services.
