* President Lambert named Pima chancellor

Shoreline Community College President Lee Lambert has been named the new chancellor at Pima Community College in Tucson, Ariz.

In unanimous vote Friday, May 17, 2013, the Pima board of governors chose Lambert to lead the six-campus college. Board Chair Brenda Even said it was clear Lambert has the skills needed to move Pima forward.

“I’m honored and pleased to be selected as the chancellor for Pima Community College,” Lambert said. “In my visit and conversations, it is apparent to me that Pima is committed to student access and success. I’m looking forward to working with any and all groups to advance the mission of the college.”

Lambert is scheduled to start at Pima on July 1.

The next step for Shoreline will be to discuss and develop a transition plan. The Shoreline Board of Trustees has scheduled an executive session for 3 p.m., Monday, May 20, with no action items on the agenda. Then, the board has a regular meeting scheduled meeting for 4 p.m., Wednesday, May 22. The Wednesday meeting will include a study session starting at 3 p.m. that day.

“I’m sorry to see Lee go, but wish him all the best in this next stage of his career,” Shoreline Board Chair Phil Barrett said. “He was a visionary president that, with faculty and staff, moved the college forward in many significant ways.  Lee leaves the college in a far better position than when he arrived. The entire board of trustees is dedicated to finding a strong leader to help take Shoreline Community College to even greater heights.”
