The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District was founded in 1961 and serves the San Francisco East Bay Area, particularly southern Alameda County, through its two colleges: Chabot College in Hayward and Las Positas College in Livermore. The colleges specialize in university transfer, technical training, continuing education, workforce development, contract education with local businesses and cultural enrichment. The district serves 24,500 students and employs more than 2,000 administrators, faculty and classified staff.
Members of a seven-member Board of Trustees set policy for the district. They are elected from trustee areas by the registered voters of nine communities: Livermore, Dublin, Pleasanton, Sunol, Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, San Leandro, Hayward and Union City.
