Purpose of the Program

The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD), comprised of nine area community colleges, offers Project MATCH as a program to prepare and recruit a diverse community college faculty who are sensitive to the needs of the students and community it serves. The goals of the program are to (1) improve the diversity of the faculty pool in the District, (2) mentor participants to serve as role models reflecting that diversity within the District, and (3) better reflect the diversity of the communities within the largest community college district in the nation.


The Program is open to all qualified applicants who:

Are authorized to work in the USA;

The subject area (either academic or vocational) must be one that is taught at one of the nine campuses of the Los Angeles Community College District. The minimum qualifications requirements for academic and vocational teaching areas are set forth in the 2021 Chancellor's Office Minimum Qualifications Handbook which can be found at: Minimum Qualifications for Faculty and Administrators in California Community Colleges (cccco.edu)

Do not have any paid college (2 or 4 year) professional teaching experience prior to applying or during the course of the mentorship, except as listed below. Similar professional experience in counseling or library science will disqualify applicants applying as counseling interns or library mentees.

The following types of paid teaching experience will not disqualify an applicant from consideration: Preschool, K-12, Adult Education, Graduate Teaching Assistant (TA), Community-Based Courses, Not-for-College-Credit Courses, or Corporate Education.

Please note that the Program is not open to those who have previously completed the program, or those who have been dismissed and/or disqualified from the Program. Also, the Program cannot be used to supplement any course work or internship requirements at other educational or credential programs for any applicant who is currently enrolled in another “community college” mentorship program or “teaching certificate” program.
