MOVEMENT is the Asian American and Pacific Islander Learning Community at Chabot College. This program addresses students’ needs through academic support services and curriculum centered around Asian American and Pacific Islander history, literature, and culture. 


At Chabot College, the Asian, Filipino, and Pacific Islander student population is the second largest on campus. There has always been a need to establish greater community and awareness of the Asian American and Pacific Islander experience but with the recent surge in hate and violence against Asian and Pacific Islander communities, our Asian and Pacific Islander students need a learning community that speaks directly to their histories, cultures, and experiences. MOVEMENT provides students with individualize counseling, transferable courses, student leadership development, and community.

  • Represents our history and experiences of migration
  • Connection to the Ethnic Studies “movements” of the 1960s - today
  • Grow and journey toward Transfer and Degree Attainment
