Definition

The Coast Community College District is a multi-college district that includes Coastline Community College, Golden West College, and Orange Coast College. The three colleges offer programs in transfer, general education, occupational/technical education, community services and student support services. Coastline, Golden West and Orange Coast enroll more than 60,000 students each year in more than 300 degree and certificate programs.

Since its founding in 1947, the Coast Community College District has enjoyed a reputation as one of the leading community college districts in the United States. Governed by a locally elected Board of Trustees, the Coast Community College District plays an important role in the community by responding to needs of a changing and increasingly diverse population.

Coast Community College District has an unwavering commitment to quality education, equitable outcomes; inclusive practices; and racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity.

Many of our colleges are designated Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) and Asian American Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISI). Coast Community College District engages in regular professional development opportunities and partnerships so that we can best serve disproportionately impacted groups. Activities and connections include a partnership with USC's Center for Urban Education; student and employee involvement in organizations like Puente, Student Veterans, and Gay Lesbian Alternative Straight Alliance (GLASA); a robust District Ally training program, including UndocuAlly (undocumented students), SafeZone (LGBTQ), Vet Net (veterans), and Ability Ally; and other equity minded programs; as well as a full calendar of culturally responsive events throughout the district.

These part-time positions are as needed and applicants should live within commuting distance to Orange County.
Coastline's Umoja Program
Umoja, (a Kiswahili word meaning unity) is a community and critical resource dedicated to enhancing the cultural and educational experiences of African American and other students.

Applicants who possess the knowledge, skills, and life experience to address the cultural and educational needs of our diverse student population are encouraged to apply.
