Pima Community College has named administrator and instructor Erica Holmes as its new provost and executive vice chancellor for academic and student services.
“With a decade in higher education leadership, Erica has the combination of skills and talents Pima needs at this pivotal moment,” Chancellor Lee Lambert said in a press release.
“I believe her recognized ability to make data-driven decisions and the value she places on strategic planning will make her an integral member of the college’s leadership team.”
Holmes has more than 15 years experience as a college instructor, and from 2009-2013 she served as vice president of academic affairs at a community college in North Carolina, according to information provided by PCC. Her most recent administrative position was at Kennedy-King College in Chicago.
“I am very excited to provide leadership that builds on the college’s core values and student success,” Holmes said. “I look forward to collaborating with the dedicated faculty and staff and the community. Together we can build on and continue the positive momentum of the college.”
She will begin work on July 1, following approval from Pima’s governing board.
