TUCSON (Tucson News Now) - Pima Community College is searching for a new provost and executive vice chancellor.

Dr. Zelema Harris will take charge of the provost's office in the interim.  She served as interim chancellor until Lee Lambert took the job earlier this year.

The changes come as PCC works to get out from academic probation from the Higher Learning Commission.
