Welcome To The Los Angeles Community Colleges!

We are glad that you have chosen to work for the Los Angeles Community College District, the largest community college district in the nation! We are delighted to have you on our team.

In the next few weeks, you will meet many members of our administration, faculty and staff. We have chosen to work for the District because of our commitment to education: as a faculty member in the classroom, or as an administrator or a staff member providing the necessary support services to help our students succeed.

As a new employee, you will get assistance and information you need from your immediate supervisor and your co-workers, and your worksite personnel office. However, you can also get help by using these webpages designed especially for new employees. This site contains information to get you started -- from your first day, through your first few weeks. It has the forms you need, your payroll calendar, benefits, collective bargaining agreements, the history of the District and more. If it's not here, just ask someone for help.

We hope your career at the District will be a rewarding, fulfilling and productive experience.

Dr. Francisco Rodriguez
