READING DEPARTMENT MISSION STATEMENT
The Reading Department's mission is to instruct students in the reading strategies that will help them meet Long Beach City College's reading proficiency requirement for a degree, as well as help them become critical readers of text across all disciplines. Knowing the text-based challenges awaiting students in college and the workplace, our program offers a rigorous and research-based curriculum.
The Reading Department faculty offices are located within the library (L Building) at the Liberal Arts Campus and also at various locations at the Pacific Coast Campus. Please click on the "Meet Our Faculty" link on the left to find a specific instructor's office.
