Dr. Suzanne L. Miles is retiring from Pima Community College.  Miles currently serves as President of Community Campus.  Her retirement is effective today.

"This is something I have been thinking about for a long time," Miles said. "It has been a tremendous honor to serve my community for nearly three decades as an educator at Pima Community College. The work we do here – helping our students realize their dreams – has been gratifying beyond description. I will always be grateful for the outpouring of genuine support I received, particularly during the many challenges we faced over the past few months."

Miles held 10 different positions and worked under eight college leaders since she started at Pima in 1986.

Miles herself served as the college's leader beginning in October 2011 and was formally named Interim Chancellor on Feb. 29, 2012. She held the post for 14 months.

"I sincerely appreciate the support that Miles has given to me since my arrival at Pima on April 15," said Interim Chancellor Dr. Zelema Harris. "She has been gracious in sharing information and has remained dedicated to the College throughout the transition in leadership."
