Thousands of Tucson parents and high school students had a chance to preview Pima Community College at its best Sept. 29 at PCC4Me, held in conjunction with the Tucson Unified School District’s annual College Night at the Tucson Convention Center.
PCC faculty, staff, administrators, and Board of Governors reached out to our diverse community with information about PCC’s myriad exceptional programs and services. Our friends and neighbors had the opportunity to learn and connect with PCC instructors, advisors, counselors, support staff, and other members of the PCC family through direct face-to-face conversations and meaningful dialogues.
I want to point out that many of these potential students will be the first in their family to attend college; for them, PCC is the institution which represents the transformational power of learning. In all, it was a great night for higher education in Tucson, and represented an unprecedented outreach effort by PCC. Congratulations are in order for all involved in PCC4Me’s planning and implementation. Special thanks go to the outstanding work of the Enrollment Management Team!
Events such as PCC4Me demonstrate that by working together, PCC employees can help the College meet our enrollment gap and other challenges, and help us realize our vision to enhance the academic, economic and cultural vitality of our students and community.
