Suzanne Miles, Pima Community College’s provost and executive vice chancellor, announced Feb. 17 that she will step down from those positions as soon as a replacement can be found.
Miles will continue acting as Community Campus president and filling in for Chancellor Roy Flores, who is on medical leave.
The PCC Board of Governors recently voted 3-2 against a recommendation to appoint Miles as chancellor upon Flores’ retirement. The board voted instead to conduct a national search. It is unclear whether Miles will apply for the chancellor position.
A national search for a new provost has begun, according to PCC spokesman C.J. Karamargin. PCC will advertise the position on more than a dozen national websites, and will use a company that has assisted in previous recruitment efforts for high-level positions such as the Downtown and Northwest campus presidents’ positions.
