Welcome to the Office of Instruction. We support the college's mission of ensuring that students from diverse backgrounds receive quality instruction in general, transfer, career, and basic skills education.

We provide leadership and support to all instructional programs in the college offered in three instructional divisions: Business, Design, and Workforce, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science and Technology. In addition, we also  provide support for Athletics, Library, and the Learning Center.


We pride ourselves in seeing growth not only in our enrollment and headcount in classes, but in our collective thinking, faculty efforts, staff support, and community awareness as well. To learn more about growth here on campus and to view helpful data and open classes, please visit "Growth at Cañada".
