El Camino Spotlight: Attend a Comprehensive Integrated Planning Session
The world has changed, in part because of the pandemic, in part because of changes that were already in progress. Some things are going back to the way they were. Some things are changing forever. Our community is changing. Our students are changing. Our faculty and staff are changing.

El Camino College wants to change and grow along with you. These conversations, in the format of public forums, are designed for us to better understand each other, and to recognize challenges and opportunities, and reestablish how El Camino College can continue to be your Community College.
