PCC Chancellor leaving for California school

Lee Lambert, president of Pima County Community College, has been elected president-elect of the Foothills de Anza Community College District.

During his time at Pima Community College, Mr. Lambert led the school to academic excellence and financial stability after the school was put on probation by the Higher Education Commission in 2013.

The university is ranked 34th in the nation and ranks first in Arizona for Hispanic student enrollment. PCC has won awards for its education programs and is recognized by Harvard University for its innovative workforce training programs.

Lambert said it was an honor to work with the Tucson community to build PCC and transform it into an award-winning institution.

Lambert has also developed the university’s Centers of Excellence in applied technology, healthcare, hospitality, information technology and cybersecurity, public safety, and the arts. It has also developed programs to prepare learners for high-demand jobs and has established diverse and comprehensive initiatives and centers across PCC’s campuses.

“Lee Lambert is an accomplished and innovative leader,” said Patrick Arends, District Chair of Foothill D’Anza Community College.

Lambert will assume his new role on August 1, 2023 in Cupertino, California.
