Dear partners and innovators, 

You may remember when Chancellor Lee Lambert talked about how Pima Community College (PCC) was using the micro-pathways design process to help transform one of the largest multi-campus community colleges in the nation. 

Pima designed eight micro-pathways through the Lab’s Community College Growth Engine Fund (CCGEF) in 2020-21. 

Today, we share some more highlights in this Transformation Profile — the first in a series.

A few highlights:

  • Over 4,000 learners interested in PCC's micro-pathways.
  • Designed for "universal access" to be more inclusive of adult learners.
  • Instituted a "universal design" approach to their PimaFastTrack program.
  • PCC uses Standards of Practice for program development where academic and workforce are aligned using CCGEF’s design criteria. 
  • Leadership changes reflect the focus on learners, micro-pathways, and innovation.
