==History of the College==

Los Angeles Mission College, the ninth college established in the Los Angeles Community College

District, first opened its doors to the public in February of 1975. That Spring, approximately twelve hundred students attended classes at the fledgling institution. The graduating class of 1975 consisted of a single student, who had transferred to the college that semester. Within two years, over 3,000 students were taking classes in fifty different disciplines, including Administration of Justice, Business, Chemistry, Chicano Studies, English, Family and Consumer Studies, Geography, Journalism, Microbiology, Real Estate, and Zoology.

 

An extremely dedicated and visionary group of founding faculty members, worked hard to develop

thriving academic and vocational programs under challenging circumstances. One of the major obstacles the college community faced, was the lack of a permanent campus for sixteen years. Students attended classes in high schools, churches, office buildings, shopping centers, and other

locations scattered throughout the cities of San Fernando and Sylmar. Countless community and campus leaders worked arduously for many years to secure a permanent site for the college. In the summer of 1991 the college moved to its permanent campus, built on 22 acres of land in the city of Sylmar.

 

As the college quickly grew to serve over 8,000 students every year, it soon became apparent that the original site was not large enough to accommodate the growing demand for educational services in the community. Many programs including Art, Physical Education, noncredit offerings, and specially funded programs had to be based at satellite locations due to the lack of space or facilities on the main campus. Students unable to park in one of the 400 spaces in the student lot soon overflowed into the surrounding neighborhood.

 

Recent voter approval of two major bond construction issues, Propositions A and AA, mark the

beginning of an exciting new chapter in Los Angeles Mission College history. The influx of bond and state money will allow the college to expand its facilities to serve up to 15,000 students by the year 2015. Construction projects planned in the future include a state funded Child Development Center, a Health, Physical Education, and Fitness Center, a Media Arts Building, Student Services Center, a Family and Consumer Studies Building, and two multi-level parking structures. Today, as Los Angeles Mission College celebrates its 30th anniversary, it looks forward to growing and continuing to serve a vibrant and diverse population that has embraced its presence and mission.

 

== Student Population ==

 

The demographic characteristics of the student population of Los Angeles Mission College are unique

and have shifted considerably since 1975. Significant changes have occurred in the ethnicity, gender, age, and other demographic characteristics of our students in the last thirty years and is based on historical data collected since 1975 and Fall 2003 figures.

 

The ethnic composition of Los Angeles Mission College students is distinctive. In the Fall of

2003, LAMC students identified themselves as follows: 70.8% Hispanic, 14.4% White, 7.1% Asian,

5.5% African-American, and 2.2% other (Figure 1). When compared to the LACCD population as a

whole, LAMC has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students, and lower percentages of

students of all other ethnic backgrounds (Tables 1 and 2). Los Angeles Mission College currently has the second highest percentage of Hispanic students in the district, second only to East Los Angeles College with 75.2%.

East Los Angeles College is a community college, of the Los Angeles Community College District, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Monterey Park, California. It compliments 14 communities comprising its primary service area. It was located in northeastern East Los Angeles (hence the name) before that part of unincoporated East Los Angeles was annexed by Monterey Park in the early 1970s. ELAC, as it is known, is in the heavily Mexican southern areas of Monterey Park (the areas north of the hills are heavily populated by Chinese Americans).

 

ELAC is a two year college, offering associate degree programs in over 25 fields as well as both academic transfer courses which prepare students for admission to the University of California and California State University system and occupational programs which prepare students for careers in two years or less. Most of the students who transfer from East Los Angeles College to a four-year university move on to nearby California State University, Los Angeles, or to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
