The Los Angeles Community College District is the largest community college district in the United States and one of the largest in the world. It includes nine community colleges throughout Los Angeles.
It educates almost three times as many Latino students and nearly four times as many African American students as all of the University of California campuses combined.
Over half of its students are older than 25, and more than a quarter are 35 or older.
In addition to college-age students, the LACCD serves people of all ages, from high school students to those continuing education or pursuing hobbies later in life.
Eighty percent of LACCD students are from underserved populations.
1in 8 LACCD students have experienced homelessness, over half are food insecure.
As Los Angeles rebuilds in the wake of the pandemic, the Los Angeles Community College District can play a pivotal role by empowering hundreds of thousands to build successful careers and fulfilling lives. And as institutions struggle to meet the surging demands for systemic change and social justice, the LACCD must do more than adapt -- it must lead.
