Yesterday & Today
Las Positas College is an indisputable Tri-Valley asset. It has provided an exceptional academic environment for its students for over 30 years. The College grew from an extension campus in the early 1970’s to a fully accredited institution of higher learning in 1991.
The College is located on a beautiful 148-acre campus in the hills of Livermore, California. It currently employs over 100 full-time faculty and some 250 adjunct faculty; it offers nearly 40 degree and over 35 technical and vocational / certificate programs to approximately 8,000 students.
LPC is in the middle of a carefully planned expansion that will accommodate 12,000 to 14,000 students by the end of the decade ahead. This development was made possible in 2004 by voter approval of a nearly $½ billion bond to renovate Chabot College and build-out Las Positas. Unfortunately, the bond money can only be used for facilities, not for programs or student support.
As part of the planning for the College’s expansion, LPC administrators, faculty, and staff have committed themselves to maintaining the same high standards and dedication to student success established when the College first opened its doors over three decades ago. This requires community financial support for the many non-construction related expenses that range from furniture, to athletic uniforms and supplies to expanded student services and staff development.
