Welcome to the Peralta Community College District Curriculum website. This site is intended as a resource for faculty, staff and administrators on the curriculum process within the Peralta district.


The role of Council on Instruction, Planning and Development (CIPD) is to advise the district in academic areas and related planning; to provide a leadership role in program development; and, to review college curriculum additions, deletions, or modifications and submit them to the Chancellor and subsequently to the Board of Trustees for approval.

Each college shall have seven voting members: the Vice President of Instruction, one other manager (the Vice President of Student Services or a Division Dean of Instruction), the college Curriculum Committee Chair, the Articulation Officer, a Faculty Senate appointee, a student representative, and the Curriculum Specialist.

The Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs and a faculty member shall co-chair the committee.  The Vice Chancellor shall have one vote in case of a tie. Curriculum and System Technology Analyst should be voting member. Ex-officio Members: PFT President, District Academic Senate President, Associate Vice Chancellor for A&R and Student Services.

CIPD meets the first Monday of each month during the regular academic year in the District Office Board Room. Meeting agendas and committee action reports to the Board of Trustees are posted on this site.
