Pima Community College has chosen Chicago educator and community college administrator Erica C. Holmes as its new provost and executive vice chancellor for academic and student services.

Holmes most recently was vice president of academic and student affairs at Kennedy-King College, which is part of the City Colleges of Chicago system.

According to a news release from PCC, Holmes has experience leading a community college through the reaffirmation of accreditation and enrollment management efforts, which resulted in record growth and retention.

"With a decade in higher education leadership, Erica has the combination of skills and talents Pima needs at this pivotal moment," PCC Chancellor Lee Lambert said in the release.  "I believe her recognized ability to make data-driven decisions and the value she places on strategic planning will make her an integral member of the College's leadership team."

Holmes teaching background includes high school-level statistics and mathematics, and college-level computer information systems, programming and web design

"It is an honor to be selected as the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Services of Pima Community College," Holmes said in the release. "I am very excited to provide leadership that builds on the college's core values and student success.  I look forward to collaborating with the dedicated faculty and staff and the community. Together we can build on and continue the positive momentum of the college."

Holmes earned her Doctorate of Education in Education Leadership from the University of Sarasota-Argosy, in Sarasota, Fla.

Holmes, whose appointment is subject to approval by the governing board, is expected to assume her new position on July 1, 2014.
