Student Union Building Phoenix College

Greetings from the President

Hello Bears!

I am so honored and humbled to serve as the president of Phoenix College, a Maricopa County Community College. In the days, weeks, months and years, to come, we will have countless opportunities to get to know each other and to discuss issues of importance and concern to you, our community.

One of my great passions is  engaging in national dialogues centered on how we can improve student retention and completion rates.

As president, I invite you to participate in sharing your opinions through community conversations both in person and through social media. To assure you are a part of those conversations, I invite you to talk with me via the convenience of social media.  I can be reached @phxcollegeprez. Our conversations will, no doubt, point to new ideas, and actions for inaugurating the next century of work.

We are so very proud of how our Phoenix College scholars and alumni have transformed how people teach and learn around the globe. We are committed to innovating how we make great teaching and learning accessible to all people, both in and out of the formal classroom.
