Biography / Administrative History

The West Valley Joint Community College District was formed in January of 1963 when voters approved creation of the district after a countywide master plan for community college education had been designed in 1962. At that time it was comprised of the Campbell Union, Los Gatos-Saratoga high school districts and the Santa Clara Unified School District. Doors opened for classes in fall 1964 at the Campbell campus. In early 1966, a 143-acre site in Saratoga was purchased for what would become the permanent campus for West Valley College and the District offices. Grandbreaking for the first campus building began in June 1967. The second campus in the College District, Mission College, began with the acquisition of 12 acres in Santa Clara and eventually grew to be a 164-acre site. Mission College was temporarily located at Jefferson Intermediate School from 1975 to 1979. With the completion of the first building phase in the fall of 1979, the new Mission College campus opened its doors to students. In September 1985, the name of the District was changed from the West Valley Joint Community College District to West Valley-Mission Community College District (WVMCCD).
