Pima Community College West Campus president Lou Albert has announced that he is retiring, effective Sept. 2.
“Lou has been president of West Campus since 2003,” Chancellor Lee Lambert said in an email sent to college employees on May 5.
“His leadership of the college’s largest campus and its many successful programs and services has been exemplary.
“His tenure at PCC caps a 51-year career in higher education that includes faculty and administrative positions at public and private colleges and universities, and almost 16 years as vice president of the American Association for Higher Education.
“Lou’s professionalism and expertise, as well as his compassion for students and colleagues, truly will be missed.”
