College of Alameda Unveils New Center for Liberal Arts

The Peralta Community College District (PCCD) announced the completion of the New Center for Liberal Arts (Building H) at the College of Alameda.

The nearly 54,000 square foot building offers specialized facilities for programming in the divisions of liberal studies and language arts, career and workforce education.

The facility also has classroom space in a variety of academic disciplines that include science, technology, engineering, art and math.

The new center includes specialized spaces for training in programs like apparel design and merchandising, along with an art gallery and studios, 20 classrooms, staff and faculty offices, and a café and event space.

As the latest project completed using Proposition A funds, future projects in the District-wide facilities master plan will be financed by the recently passed $800 million Proposition G bond. This will allow the District to renovate aging classrooms, build new science and technology labs, and modernize facilities across all four of its campuses.

College of Alameda opened in 1970 and is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Join the online celebration from 7 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 1 by registering at https://bit.ly/CoA50th.

“It mixes beautiful, artistic architectural forms and technological functionality to create a warm, bright, modern learning atmosphere to maximize student success and classroom engagement. This teaching facility showcases the best of what can be expected in our next half century at College of Alameda.”
