TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Johnson Bia, president of Pima Community College's Desert Vista campus, is retiring, the college announced today.

Bia was recently the subject of an investigation by the college after allegations of inappropriate behavior. He has served as an administrator for 22 years.

In a memo to the PCC staff, Chancellor Lee Lambert said that after looking into Bia's conduct, it was decided that it was in "everyone's best interest that he retires at this time."

Bia's retirement is effective June 3, 2014.

Vice President of Instruction Ted Roush is serving in an interim leadership role for the campus on Tucson's southwest side, at 5901 S. Calle Santa Cruz.

In his retirement announcement, Bia wrote, "I have simply concluded it is time to move on and I have been blessed here at Pima."
