President's Welcome

Dr. DuranWelcome to Oxnard College, a two-year comprehensive community college dedicated to student success, academic achievement and community partnerships.

Oxnard College promotes high quality teaching and learning to meet the needs of a diverse student population. As a multicultural, comprehensive institution of higher learning, the college works to empower and inspire students to succeed in their personal and educational goals. As a unique and accessible student resource, the mission of Oxnard College is that we are a learning-centered institution that embraces academic excellence by providing multiple pathways to student success.

Oxnard College is expanding our facilities as a result of a voter-approved bond measure in 2002. As a result, numerous infrastructure improvements have been made as well as new buildings being added to the campus. The new Student Services & Administration building was completed in summer 2009. The Performing Arts Center was opened Spring 2011 and the new Learning Resource Center/Library offered services in 2012. A new dental facility is planned to be completed by 2015. All of this growth is to support the mission of the college and promote student success.

I invite you to explore the opportunities to learn at Oxnard College. Welcome!

Richard Durán, Ed.D.
