HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE
Los Angeles Mission College was founded in 1975. For the first 16 years of its existence, the college operated out of scattered storefronts throughout the northeast San Fernando Valley. In 1991, the college moved to its permanent home a 22-acre campus in Sylmar. Although Mission College remains one of the most contemporary community colleges in the state, it still lacks many of the facilities usually identified with a college. Through Propositions A and AA, Mission College is expected to largely complete its campus by adding a media arts center, a family and consumer studies center, physical fitness center, larger bookstore, and adequate parking.
