The Chabot College Community
Chabot College is committed to educational equity in its academic programs and college services so that students may achieve their personal, educational, and career goals. Our equity work today builds upon a strong history: the Puente and Umoja (formerly Daraja) learning communities, now models which have been replicated across the state, were created at Chabot College. These programs have paved the way for a series of additional educational and student support programs intentionally focused on equity that thrive at Chabot College today. Chabot College is located in Hayward, California, the third most diverse city in the United States. We serve a highly diverse student population and are proud to be designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution. Information about the demographics of our campus community can be found here (http://www.chabotcollege.edu/ir/).
Serving our diverse community requires a culturally-responsive approach that recognizes the myriad strengths and assets that our students bring to the campus community. We do so by promoting a classroom and co-curricular learning environment that is inclusive, collaborative, engaging, and challenging, and where respect, dignity, and integrity are core values. We see students as producers of knowledge, not just consumers of knowledge. We work to reframe inequities as a problem of practice, and view the elimination of inequities as an individual and institutional responsibility.

The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District is seeking an Administrative Assistant for Chabot College in Hayward, California.

The Administrative Assistant is the journey-level classification in the administrative support/secretarial series. Incumbents are assigned to perform a wide range of administrative support, secretarial, and clerical duties independently for a program area or to provide secondary support to a large/complex administrative, academic services, or student services program area. Incumbents at this level typically receive instruction or assistance only as new or unusual situations arise, and have familiarity with the operating procedures and policies of the work unit upon completion of the probationary period.
The Administrative Assistant is distinguished from the College Clerk by the direct secretarial support the Administrative Assistant provides to a program area including providing general administrative and secretarial support to professional or management staff. It is further distinguished from the Senior Administrative Assistant classification in that the Senior Administrative Assistant class is responsible for providing support to senior management staff with responsibility for a large/complex administrative, academic services, or student services program area. The Senior Administrative Assistant classification typically reports to and is the primary position supporting a Dean or Director level administrator or provides advanced journey-level secretarial support to executive, administrative, or management staff.
