The nine colleges in the Los Angeles Community College District serve about 250,000 students annually. Overall, the District covers 882 square miles and serves 36 cities.
The colleges offer low-cost education to a diverse student body. More than 40% of all LACCD students are over age 25 and about 17% are 35 or older. More than 70% of LACCD students are underserved minorities.
The LACCD also is a leader in environmentally responsible construction. Thanks to its $14.9 billion Sustainable Building Program*, LACCD is modernizing its colleges and building more than 40 new structures District-wide that will meet LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. In addition, the LACCD is generating solar power on its campuses and taking other steps to reduce the colleges’ carbon footprint.
