Equity, diversity, and inclusion are essential to our culture and the work that we do within the Ventura County Community College District (VCCCD). The VCCCD is a public community college district serving residents throughout Ventura County. The VCCCD's three colleges - Moorpark College, Oxnard College, and Ventura College - offer programs for transfer to four-year colleges and universities; career technical training; basic skills instruction; as well as community service, economic development, and continuing education for cultural growth, life enrichment, and skills improvement. The Ventura County Community College District recognizes that a diverse community of faculty, staff, and administrators promote academic excellence. This creates an inclusive educational and work environment for its students, employees, and the community it serves. With the understanding that a diverse community fosters multi-cultural awareness, promotes mutual understanding and respect, and provides role models for all students, the VCCCD is committed to recruiting and employing a diverse and committed group of faculty, staff, and administrators who are dedicated to the success of all college students.
We encourage candidates who are equity-minded to submit an application for employment. We are designated Hispanic-Serving Institutions committed to racial and socio-economic diversity as it reflects our communities and student populations. We actively seek to attract candidates who share this commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. For the VCCCD, equity-mindedness refers to the perspective or mode of thinking exhibited by practitioners who call attention to patterns of inequity in student outcomes.
