Proposed Construction of the Lompoc Valley Center in the Allan Hancock Joint Community College District. A Report to the Governor and Legislature in Response to a Request from the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The Allan Hancock Joint Community College District proposes establishing a permanent educational center in the Lompoc area of Santa Barbara County, primarily to consolidate its current outreach operations in the area but also to accommodate anticipated enrollment growth in the area. Donated by the United States Army, the 155-acre site will be given by the City of Lompoc to the Allan Hancock District. The California Postsecondary Education Commission bases its eight conclusions and two recommendations on its recently revised Guidelines for Review of Proposed University Campuses, Community Colleges, and Educational Centers (1992c), which require an analysis of enrollment projections, alternatives, serving the disadvantaged, academic planning, accessibility, effects on other institutions, environmental impact, and economic efficiency. The Commission has concluded that the proposal satisfies all criteria for approval, and thus it offers two recommendations in the report: (1) the Lompoc Valley Center should be approved as an educational center of the Allan Hancock Joint Community College District; and (2) the Lompoc Valley Center should become eligible for State capital outlay funding as of the 1993-94 fiscal year. Appended in this report are the Board of Governors' Agenda Item 17, September 10-11, 1992; and Letters of Support for the Lompoc Valley Center. Contains 14 references. (VWC)
