State Budget Cuts Force Partial Suspension of Athletics at LACC

Due to deep cuts in funding resulting from the State’s current budget Los Angeles City College has been forced to suspend six of its athletic teams. The Women’s Volleyball program will continue this season. Given the choice between offering classes or offering sports, we have chosen to offer classes. It was a difficult decision, but our primary mission is the education of our community. We intend to restore our sports programs as soon as financially possible.

Founded in 1929, LACC is one of the most diverse campuses in the 110-campus California Community College System, located adjacent to the Central Los Angeles, Koreatown, Filipinotown and Little Armenia areas of the city. Serving nearly 38,000 students annually, LACC offers academic and workforce development programs in over 160 areas and is part of the Los Angeles Community College District, the largest community college system in the United States. Classes are offered year-round and financial aid is available to students who qualify. For more information, visit www.lacitycollege.edu or call 323.953.4000.
