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 20% are 35 or older. About 65% of LACCD students are underserved minorities.
The LACCD also is a leader in environmentally responsible construction. Thanks to its $6 billion Sustainable Building Program*, LACCD is modernizing its colleges and building more than 60 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.

*The $6 billion largely comes from three voter-approved bond measures: Proposition A ($1.245 billion), Proposition AA ($980 million) and Measure J ($3.5 billion).
