PCC welcomes new Desert Vista campus president

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A campus of Pima Community College has a new leader.

Morgan Phillips is taking over as president of PCC’s Desert Vista Campus.

“As a community college graduate, I have a close personal understanding of the transformative role institutions like Pima can play in our students’ lives,” Phillips said. “My top priority as a community college administrator is to make sure we provide our students with the programs and services they need to realize their dreams.

He was a vice president at a community college in North Carolina since 2012 and worked at a college in Florida before that.

He starts on August 14.

Phillips will replace Johnson Bia, who retired earlier this year after accusations of inappropriate behavior.
