The Learning Connection at Chabot College provides students and instructors with the support they need to achieve their learning and teaching goals.


Students: We oversee a number of tutoring labs and learning support programs across campus, including the Learning Connection center (LC), the STEM Center, the Writing and Reading Across the Curriculum (WRAC) Center, Language Center (ESL), Communication Studies Lab, and Learning Assistant program.

Instructors: The Learning Connection houses the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) and Learning Assessment Center (LAC).

We strive to meet the following outcomes:

  • Students who take advantage of the Learning Connection's Learning Support Programs will succeed and persist in the course(s) for which they receive support at higher rates than students who do not.
  • Students who receive Learning Support will actively engage in the learning process at higher rates than those who do not.
  • The Learning Connection will maintain a supportive environment that enhances student learning.
