Approval of Las Positas College in Livermore: A Report to the Governor and Legislature on the Development of Las Positas College (Formerly the Livermore Education Center of Chabot College).
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The Livermore Education Center (LEC), an off-campus center of Chabot College, was established in 1975. In 1986, the South County Community College District designated the LEC a full-service community college campus eligible for state funding of facilities, and in 1988, the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges approved Las Positas College (LPC) as the 107th college of the system. Although the college was built entirely with local funds, to receive state funds for capital expansion, the California Postsecondary Education Commission (CPEC) must formally review plans for the college, just as it reviews proposals and plans for new college campuses. This report constitutes CPEC's review of plans for LPC and its approval of the college within the California Community College System, making it eligible for state capital outlay funding as of the 1991-92 fiscal year. After part 1 reviews CPEC's conclusions and recommendations, part 2 describes CPEC's involvement in the college planning process and the history of the proposal for Las Positas College. Part 3 reviews the following aspects of the Las Positas proposal: adequate funding projections; alternatives to new campuses or off-campus centers; serving the disadvantaged; geographic and physical accessibility; environmental and social impact; effects on other institutions; academic planning and program justification; and consideration of needed funding which includes projected capital outlay projects for LPC from 1990-91 through 1994-95. Appendixes include CPEC guidelines and procedures for the review of new campuses and off-campus centers; a history of LEC and LPC; and a copy of the LPC master plan educational program. (PAA)
