West Hills College Lemoore plays a critical role in providing opportunities for students in Kings County and parts of Fresno and Tulare County. The vast majority, over 60% of the students, are low income students and most are first in their family to attend college. As a college located in a rural region of California it serves as beacon of opportunity and a catalyst of economic improvement to the community it serves.
Activities outlined within the Student Equity plan are part of a guided pathways framework with the intent to drive student success for all students including identified Disproportionately Impacted (DI) groups. Faculty, staff and administrators are committed to closing the achievement gaps addressed in the plan by increasing student achievement within the following metrics: Access to successful enrollment, retention from fall to spring semester, transfer rate of students to a four-year institution, successful completion of transfer level English and math within the first year and vision goal completion.
