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 to provide and promote student learning through general education, career training, transfer services and opportunities for lifelong learning.

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 will open Spring 2011 and the new Learning Resource Center/Library will be added in 2012. Following this, a new dental facility is planned to be completed by 2013. 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.
