Located on 150 acres of sloping hillside land in the eastern region of Ventura County, Moorpark College is the second oldest and largest of Ventura County Community College District’s three colleges.
Moorpark College opened in September 1967 to serve the rapidly growing communities in the eastern part of the county. Its two sister colleges, Ventura College in the northwest part of the county and Oxnard College in the southwest, were launched in 1925 and 1975, respectively.
Each community college has its own unique culture. The first administrators selected the founding college faculty and staff for their willingness to experiment with traditional approaches to education. This spirit of experimentation permeates Moorpark College’s culture; it has led the college to create innovative learning opportunities for the diverse group of students that make up the Moorpark College community.
Currently, Moorpark College serves approximately 14,576 students in day, evening, and weekend courses. There are approximately 162 full- time faculty, 306 part-time faculty, 117 full-time classified employees, and 20 managers and supervisors.
The Ventura County Community College District
Ventura County Community College District offers fully-accredited educational programs for students transferring to four-year colleges and universities, vocational programs for acquiring job skills, and programs for updating career skills through continuing education.
Governed by a five-member locally elected Board of Trustees and directed by the Chancellor, Ventura County Community College District serves a county of approximately 800,000 residents.
The District currently serves over 36,646 students through its three colleges: Moorpark College, Oxnard College, and Ventura College. Ventura County growth projections indicate there will be over 900,000 residents by year 2015, resulting in growth potential at each of the District’s colleges.
Ideally situated on California’s gold coast between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, Ventura County affords its residents easy access to coastal and inland waters, mountains, plains, and islands.
