The West Hills Community College District's Essential Elements Series attracts participants throughout the state. Given rising concerns regarding COVID-19, we are postponing Essential Elements to Fall 2020. The priority of West Hills and our partners is the health and well-being of our community. New save-the-dates will be sent in Summer 2020. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to your participation in the Fall!
