A group of officials from Pima Community College in Tucson Ariz., are visiting Shoreline Community College on May 13-14, 2013.
Shoreline President Lee Lambert is the leading candidate for the open position of chancellor at Pima, a six-campus system that is the eighth largest community college in the U.S. Lambert is one of four finalists for the Pima job. The Pima Board of Governors voted Friday, May 10, to authorize the visit to Shoreline as part of their decision process. No other campus visits were identified.
Pima Governing Board Chair Brenda Even said Lambert was “the candidate that seemed to rise to the top.” She has said the visit to Shoreline is a typical part of the “due diligence process” in the hiring of a new chancellor
