Victor Valley Community College District is searching for a visionary leader to serve as Deputy Superintendent/Executive Vice President, Administrative Services. Established in 1961, Victor Valley College (VVC) has served as the High Desert region’s primary provider of higher education for nearly 60 years. The college’s main campus in Victorville is 253 acres and centrally located to the three largest nearby communities of Victorville, Hesperia, and Apple Valley. VVC also features a 13-acre Regional Public Safety Training Center and an aviation program at the Southern California Logistics Airport. A population base of approximately 420,000 people with more than 30 feeder high schools and diploma-granting institutions rely on VVC for their higher education needs and workforce training. VVC is enriched by the diversity of its students, including Hispanics (59%), Whites (21.5%), African Americans (9.9%), multiple races (5.4%), Asians (1.4 %).

VVC’s career education programs offer more than 100 certifications and teach fundamental skills that employers in almost every corner of the region need. The Nursing Program continues to rank among the top programs in the state for producing “ready to work” graduates. The Dual Enrollment Program, which works with local high schools to bolster the number of college-ready students, has grown to 15 partners. The College’s Associated Student Body Council (ASB) has been named the “Campus of the Year” by the American Student Association of Community Colleges (ASACC) three times, most recently in 2019.

VVC has embraced the Caring Campus Initiative in order to encourage greater participation from the local community and increase student retention and success. The college believes it is particularly important for students from historically underserved populations, students of color, students from low-income households, and first-generation students to feel welcome and that they belong in college. Last year, an advisory group was established to lead VVC in its pursuit of the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, the nation’s most distinctive award for community colleges, which highlights institutions with outstanding achievements in four areas: student learning, certificate and degree completion, employment and earnings, and high-levels of access and success for students of color and low-income students. VVC currently enrolls about 17,500 unduplicated students.
