Basic Skills Initiative

The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges founded the Basic Skills Initiative to provide basic skills education to students who are under-prepared for college level course work.  Explorations of Focused Inquiry Groups and Chabot's Basic Skills Committee aim to explore issues effecting the success and persistence of our students enrolled in pre-college level courses and to recommend policies and strategies that will improve their progress into college-level courses.



Title III

The Title III Grant, $2 million over five years from the U.S. Department of Education, focuses on establishing the infrastructure needed for improved basic skills education.  The grant's Focused Inquiry Groups, Center for Teaching and Learning, and Learning Assessment coordination will establish and enhance Chabot's implementation of basic skills learning programs, professional development, and assessment of teaching and learning.



Faculty Inquiry Network

Funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation ($1.75 million), the Faculty Inquiry Network (FIN) will investigate complex problems in basic skills education at community colleges across California. Chabot College is the lead institution for this project.
