College-wide Planning Summit

  • Friday, April 10, 2015
  • 9:00am - 12:00pm
  • Epler Gymnasium (Room 9202, Building 9, second floor), Fremont campus

The purpose of the summit is to gather input on our next 5-year strategic plan from the entire college.

All classified staff, administrators, managers, confidentials, full-time and adjunct faculty are welcome. To the extent possible, College offices will be closed and classes cancelled to maximize participation by all faculty and staff. If your class is held during this time, you may dismiss your classes to attend without losing pay. ASOC is also inviting some students to participate.

If you missed the preparation meetings, you can view them online at the links below. The preparation meetings will provide you with background information from the environmental scan and other data relevant to the strategic planning process.

Your perspective is important to Ohlone’s future. Please plan to attend!

I am pleased to welcome you to Ohlone College. Below is an update on some of our current activities at the District.

Bond Measure

Big changes are underway! After many months of planning, construction work on the Measure G projects is finally beginning. Our first project was to install photo voltaic arrays at both the Fremont and Newark campuses generating two megawatts of electrical power for the District. This semester we broke ground on our award-winning South Parking Structure, which will provide over 900 parking spaces in summer 2015.

Temporary space for classrooms and offices is in the process of being installed on our parking lots B and C, and will provide over 40,000 square feet of space available by spring 2015. An additional 13,000 square feet of modular space will be installed at the Newark campus, allowing about 15% of our instructional program to move there during the construction period.

In summer 2015, Buildings 1, 2, and 8 will be demolished, making way for three brand new buildings that will house sciences, the arts, the library and learning labs, and classrooms. In addition, our athletic fields will be completely revitalized and a new field house provided.

The college community has invested countless hours and its best planning in these projects, knowing the modernized campus is Ohlone’s future for the next fifty years. These are exciting projects that will provide exceptional learning space. I am pleased with the commitment of the college to making Ohlone the best possible place for our students and community.

Again, welcome to Ohlone.
