Dean’s Welcome Message

Dean Wilson

Welcome to Chabot College!

As the Dean of Special Programs & Services I believe you will discover that Chabot College is the place for you!  We are so excited that you have chosen our campus as a partner in your educational journey. We are committed to making sure that all students who come to Chabot feel supported and nurtured and do well.

We honor and respect cultural diversity and go the extra mile to ensure a comfortable and friendly environment that makes our campus feel like home. We are here to ensure that support and guidance are always available as our ultimate goal is to develop the leaders of tomorrow.

Chabot has a wonderful campus community with high student-faculty engagement. It is a place where you are able to make close friends, study, learn and grow. We invite you to “officially” become part of the Chabot family and build essential skills, and social and career networks before you graduate into the workforce and/or transfer to a four-year college or university.

I hope to get to know you in the coming year and look forward to supporting your academic and personal success at Chabot College!


Dean Wilson’s Quick Tips for Success at Chabot

  • Get to know your instructors and never be afraid to ask for help. This is the best way to learn and get ahead.
  • Be sure to complete your assessment, online orientation and Student Educational Plan (SEP) to receive priority registration. (Get classes before they close!)
  • Make one new friend each day. Instructors, staff and administrators can be your friends too. Just say, “Hi my name is…..” and you’re on your way with a whole new network.
