We at College of Alameda have rededicated ourselves to the concepts of a learning-centered college whose goal is to support your success.
Integral to these efforts is revamping our college’s web pages to provide ease in navigation and greater access to college activities and services. Also, the college is embarking on major renovations that include: upgrading our classrooms with the latest smart technologies, and esthetic improvements in our outdoor landscape, equipment and classroom furniture. As part of our strategic facilities plan instructional buildings C & D will be demolished and plans are underway to build a new building with an estimated completion date of 2014. All these projects are funded by voters in support of the Measure “A” bond initiative.
