Academic Freedom Academic freedom exists and is nurtured in our community for the common good of all citizens. Students, faculty, administrators and society itself derive benefits from the practice of academic freedom with its open search for truth and its free exposition. Academic freedom is fundamental for the protection of the instructor’s right in teaching and the student’s right in learning in the classroom and on the campus. Academic freedom carries with it responsibilities correlative with rights, such responsibilities being implicit in all freedoms and assured by all members of the college to insure the rights of others. Any issue involving the alleged violation of academic freedom on campus shall follow the procedures of academic due process as provided for the students, faculty, and the college, whichever be appropriate. (Board Manual, Policy 4320, adopted March 19, 1996) Student Non-Discrimination Policy In compliance with Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (45 CFR 86). Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1974 and its own statements of philosophy and objectives. Chabot College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age or handicap.

You are joining a community of learners that is one of the most diverse and inspiring in the Bay Area. Chabot’s academic, vocational, and technical programs are justifiably celebrated, and have set the bench mark for excellence in a number of areas. Our commitment to the education of the “whole person” is exemplified in our outstanding arts and athletics programs, our student government, and the excellence of our support programs, which help guide you through your college experience. We are proud to be an Hispanic Serving Institution, as well as serving a richly diverse community of students from many other backgrounds. As faculty, students, and staff we are committed to, and nurture, the importance of civic engagement with the social, political, economic, and cultural institutions of the communities we serve. I hope that you will sample many of our offerings, develop your direction, hone your critical thinking abilities, learn new skills, and participate fully in the life of our college. In the words of the Spanish poet Antonio Machado, whom I have quoted above, “Traveler, there is no road, you make your path as you walk. At Chabot College, we will offer you many pathways but it is your individual journey. Make it a great one! Sincerely, Susan Sperling, Ph.D. President Chabot College 2012–2014 3 Chabot-Las Positas Board of Trustees The Chabot-Las Positas Board of Trustees governs the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District and is responsible for all policy decisions.
