Clovis Community College is a public community college located in northeastern Fresno, California[1] near Clovis. It is in the State Center Community College District (SCCCD) along with Fresno City College and Reedley College (which includes the Madera and Oakhurst Centers).

History[edit]

Clovis Community College was a North Center of Reedley College until July 1, 2015, when it became a separate campus of SCCCD. It was first known as the Willow International Center and changed to Clovis Community College Center in 2014, before dropping the "center" from the name.[2] The campus opened in 2007 on 110 acres (0.45 km2) of land located in northeast Fresno. The first buildings included an 80,000 sq ft (7,400 m2) academic complex housing state of the art labs and classrooms as well as a bookstore, internet cafe, and library. Future projects include an additional 80,000-square-foot (7,400 m2) academic building which will house a fitness center, student services, offices and classrooms.
