Office of Instruction
Welcome to the Office of Instruction
The Mission of the Office of Instruction is to support and promote quality and integrity in all aspects of academic and instructional programs offered at Taft College. Centered on the student as an individual, our Mission includes promoting teaching and learning excellence, as well as meeting the learning needs of our diverse student body.

An essential component of our vision includes the firm belief that diversity enriches the twin goals of teaching and learning, and contributes to a more meaningful experience for both the students and the institution as a whole.
The Office of Instruction oversees all credit and non-credit instructional programs offered through Taft College.
It is responsible for:
- program development
- enrollment management
- the academic calendar
- faculty teaching assignments
- collaboration and consultation on new and developing academic programs.
In addition, the Office of Instruction provides support and resources for Student Learning Outcomes and accreditation.
