ventura county community college district

Three South Coast colleges are taking a step toward going green, with a new effort from the Ventura County Community College District.

Ventura, Moorpark, and Oxnard college comprise the VCCCD, and the three schools will start construction on new solar-covered parking next year.

After a big search to find a new chancellor, a South Coast community college district found one right in its backyard.

Ventura College President Greg Gillespie is going to be the new chancellor of the Ventura County Community College District. The district had been negotiating with another finalist, but after it couldn’t reach a deal, trustees unanimously voted for Gillespie to head the three campus, 30,000 plus student district.
