Mission Statement:  The El Camino College Community Education department provides fee-based, short-term, not-for-credit classes, workshops, career-training programs and events for professional and/or personal development with an emphasis on inspiring a sense of wonder and imagination for lifelong learning.

Overarching Outcomes: The desired overarching outcome(s) of the Community Education department is to provide high-quality, engaging, community-driven and market-driven classes, workshops, and events that are responsive to the recreational and vocational needs of our diverse demographic of students while maintaining high levels of student-satisfaction ratings.

Not-for-Credit Classes, Workshops, Career-Training Programs and Events: College credit is not given for classes conducted by the Community Education department.  There are no transcripts or grades.  Community Education is a self-supporting entity of the college and is not funded by taxpayer dollars. 

Service Area Outcome (SAO): After attending an El Camino College Community Education class, students will be able to use the information received from the class for personal or professional development.
