A Community College Contemplates a Future Without State Money

The Chronicle of Higher Education
March 6th, 2015

When Lee D. Lambert took office as chancellor of Pima County Community College, in July 2013, he figured that Arizona lawmakers would eventually eliminate all of the college's state funding.
"When I first started here, it didn't take me too long to start thinking that we would get zeroed out," he said. "I knew this day would come; I just didn't think it would come this quickly."
But now Gov. Douglas A. Ducey, a Republican in his first term, has proposed a budget that would slash appropriations to community colleges by nearly $18-million, while entirely eliminating state money for three of the state's community-college districts: Maricopa, Pima, and Pinal Counties.
