The College has a long-standing history and memorable traditions of excellence in education, community volunteerism and philanthropy. Yet, there continues to be a need to balance history and tradition with innovation, flexibility, and nimbleness to move quickly to address the changing environment in which we live. Long Beach City College is well positioned to address the needs of the communities it serves as well as a global society that is changing demographically, economically, technologically, and environmentally, especially in a post pandemic world. With this focus on addressing the future needs of its students and the communities it serves, LBCC is committed to providing equitable student learning and achievement, academic excellence, and economic workforce development by delivering high quality educational programs and support services to our diverse communities.
The College's strategic plan outlines LBCC's mission and values which include:
LBCC employs approximately 1,900 full-time and part-time faculty and staff and helps nearly 36,000 students meet their educational and career goals. The College boasts a rich diversity in its student population and maintains the designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). LBCC offers its students 333 degrees and certificates in various fields, 93 courses of study, approximately 1,423 courses, and 5,650 class sections per year. LBCC also offers 18 intercollegiate athletic programs for its student athletes and holds more national and state titles and bowl appearances than any other California Community College. LBCC has been selected by Cal-Hi Sports as the best community college athletics program in the nation twice.
Long Beach City College prides itself on its history of innovative thinking and strategic teamwork to help ensure that the College, and most importantly, the students achieve their goals. Notable innovations include The Long Beach College Promise, a groundbreaking partnership with Long Beach Unified School District (K-12), California State University, Long Beach, and the City of Long Beach. This effort includes an extensive set of intersegmental reforms aimed at increasing college preparation, access, and completion. Within this effort, local high school graduates who immediately enroll in Long Beach City College are afforded free tuition for one year, and subsequent priority access to California State University, Long Beach. The College's Economic and Workforce Development Programs provide training for good jobs and assist local small businesses through the Southern California Regional Center for Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses and the Los Angeles Regional Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network. Working with its education partners, the College is also focusing on developing Career Pathway Programs to provide a highly qualified workforce for rapidly developing industries such as advanced manufacturing.
From academics to entrepreneurship and athletics, Long Beach City College students have achieved remarkable success. LBCC is well positioned to build on its strengths, with its new strategic plan, strong partnerships, and a recently approved $850 million bond measure to fund capital improvements.
