On August 10, the Ventura County Community College District Board of Trustees unanimously approved the policy COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for Employees and Students. The policy requires that everyone who accesses in-person, on-site campus/District programs, or who participates in off-site District/college services in person will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Effective Oct. 15, the mandate allows time for unvaccinated employees, students and the public to complete two-dose vaccines. Exemptions will be made for individuals who cannot be vaccinated due to medical and/or religious reasons.

 For more information, please review Board Policy 3506 COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for Employees and Students.

We are accepting applications on an on-going basis for future consideration for part-time instructors in this discipline at any of our three colleges (Oxnard, Moorpark, and Ventura).

If you have applied to previous pools in this discipline, you will need to apply to this pool to continue to be considered.

Minimum Qualifications

Candidates must possess the minimum qualifications for the discipline as approved by the California Community Colleges Board of Governors and defined in the Minimum Qualifications for Faculty and Administrators in California Community Colleges handbook.

Master's in economics;
OR
Bachelor's in economics AND Master's in business, business administration, business management, business education, finance or political science;
OR 
possession of an appropriate California Community College Credential.
 

All coursework must be from a recognized accredited college or university. If you have competed your education at an institution outside of the United States, please see the section below titled “Foreign Transcripts” for additional information.

*EQUIVALENCY
The Ventura County Community College District, in its desire to select outstanding faculty members from the largest possible pool of qualified applicants, recognizes the fact that candidates may attain expertise in a discipline through a variety of means.  Certain combinations of education, experience and other accomplishments in the field may be judged by the District as equal to the stated minimum qualifications for this position.  Candidates whose transcripts do not list the title of their degree exactly as listed above, but feel they possess such equivalent qualifications are encouraged to complete and submit the Supplemental Questionnaire for Equivalency (Download PDF reader) (Download PDF reader) with their application for review by the Districtwide Equivalency Committee.
 
Example:
Minimum Qualifications state: “Master’s degree in agriculture”. 
Candidate’s transcripts state: “Master’s degree in agricultural science”. 
 

Since the degree on the candidate’s transcripts in the example do not EXACTLY MATCH the degree listed in the minimum qualifications section, this candidate MUST complete the Supplemental Questionnaire for Equivalency (Download PDF reader) in order to be considered (Download PDF reader). When completing the form, be sure to explain in detail how your qualifications are equivalent to the required minimum qualifications. Do not assume that you do not need to submit a Supplemental Questionnaire for Equivalency because your degree is similar to a degree stated in the minimum qualifications. Degree titles that are not an exact match will not be considered outside of the equivalency process.

The equivalency review is an independent process for district wide disciplines that is separate from the recruitment process to fill a vacancy.  A subcommittee of discipline experts that is coordinated by an Academic Senate President will review the equivalency materials and make a recommendation as to whether or not the applicant demonstrated they have qualifications that are equivalent to those shown in the minimum qualifications section of the job posting.  For disciplines that are unique to a specific campus the equivalency may be done by the hiring committee along with an Academic Senate President.  Please be aware that the hiring committee may not be able to wait for the results from the equivalency review due to various time constraints and may need to move forward with the recruitment process.  
 
For further details regarding equivalency and the criteria by which equivalency may be granted, please review VCCCD Board Policy 7211 and VCCCD Administrative Policy 7211.
