Student-centered activities that support OCC's mission include campus-wide student success projects funded by the Office of Student Equity; partnerships with local Hispanic-serving four year institutions; active programs that work to improve the academic achievement of racially minoritized and/or disenfranchised students, such as PUENTE and UMOJA; Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) and Disabled Student Program and Services (DSPS).

 

The Technology Division at Orange Coast College has 8 departments: Architecture; Aviation Maintenance; Aviation Science; Construction; Electronics; Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration (HVACR); Manufacturing, and Welding.  The Technology Division serves students bound for transfer and in service of career and technical programs.  We encourage innovative teaching methods, as well as, student and faculty engagement outside of the classroom.  The Division promotes career pathways and integration with high school programs and universities to facilitate student access, successful course of study, and educational goal achievement.  Technology Division faculty take a multi-discipline approach to student research and projects, community engagement, and in partnerships with local institutions to promote STEM engagement for racially minoritized populations.
