Antelope Valley Community College District is one of 72 community college districts in California. The district consists of Antelope Valley College, a 135 acre campus in Lancaster, and the AVC Palmdale Center, a leased facility in central Palmdale, which support 11,500 full-time equivalent students (FTES). The 2011 Facilities Master Plan Update is a strategy for modifying the physical campus in Lancaster to accommodate growth and change over the next 30 years. The initial Facilities Master Plan for the Palmdale Center is presently being developed to support proposed expansion plans of the center and will be incorporated into the district Facilities Master Plan.
Based on findings from the districts Educational Master Plan, the resulting Facilities Master Plan provides a guide for long-term land and building use and serves as a guide for near-term decisions on program planning and implementation, resource allocation, setting priorities and other College administrative matters which influence the student educational experience at Antelope Valley College.
