Mission Statement and Vision
In honor of its founding history, Los Angeles Southwest College is committed to providing a student-centered and equitable learning environment designed to empower a diverse student population and the surrounding community to achieve their academic and career goals by:
- attaining certificates and associate degrees leading to transfer and workforce preparation
- eliminating systemic racism and exclusion
- becoming a model educational institution for the success of students of color
Los Angeles Community College District’s Board of Trustees gave final approval to the Mission Statement. It had previously been approved by LASC’s Strategic Planning Committee, Academic Senate and College Council.
