School Notes

  • Set on an attractive 49 acres, Los Angeles City College was the original location for UCLA before it moved to Westwood, CA. The college facilities include more than a dozen multistory classroom buildings including a library, computer labs, fitness centers, theatre, and TV/film studios. Through a $147 million bond award, the college is further enhancing itself with a new and advanced technology learning facility, increased parking, and expanded athletic/fitness and child development centers. Los Angeles Junior College was established on September 9, 1929, by the Los Angeles Board of Education. Dr. William H. Snyder served as the institution's first director. During its first year, we offered only first-semester courses. The "semi-professional courses" were for students who wanted to limit their college education to two years, and the "certificate courses" were for those looking to continue toward university work. There were more than 1,300 students taught by some 54 faculty. The first Associate in Arts degrees were conferred June 19, 1931. The mission of the LACCD colleges is to provide comprehensive lower-division Transfer Education, Occupational Education, General Education, Transitional Education, Counseling and Guidance, Student Services, Continuing Education, Community Services, and Joint Programs that are appropriate to the communities served and that meet the changing needs of students for academic and occupational preparation, citizenship, and cultural understanding. Los Angeles City College, a California public, tax-supported community college, is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, an institutional accrediting body recognized by the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation and the United States Department of Education.
