TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
Dr. Lee Lambert will continue to hold the top spot at Pima Community College at least through June 2017.
The PCC Governing Board unanimously approved an amendment on Wednesday to extend Chancellor Lambert’s contract by one year to June 30, 2017.
Lambert reviewed for the board what they can expect in the 2014-2015 school year. He presented his goals, objectives and timelines from the 2013-2014 year, including what worked well and goals that still need to be met.
Lambert commended PCC for conducting its Institutional Self-Study, a comprehensive self-examination of the college’s policies, processes and goals, which was set into motion after the Higher Learning Commission placed PCC on probation in April 2013. Part of his timeline includes completing the Self-Study Report and preparing for the HLC’s visit from September 15 through 17.
In May, the governing board approved a three percent salary pool increase for full-time faculty for the 2014-2015 year, making Lambert’s annual base pay $298,700. Lambert has led PCC since July 1, 2013.
