District Priorities and Goals

West Hills Community College District is home to some of the nation’s most disadvantaged students. Many communities served by the college are characterized by several connected challenges, such as poverty, unemployment, and low levels of educational attainment. According to educational research, these challenges are linked to negatively impacting student achievement.

Providing students with support services that help with success specific to the student educational attainment journey is of upmost concern at both West Hills College Coalinga and West Hills College Lemoore. Both colleges are focused on collaborative efforts to increase educational attainment rates within the region they serve.
