About the Division

    The College meets the needs of the community by offering instruction when and how our students want it: evenings, weekends, year-round, in traditional classroom settings, online and virtual learning, in web-classroom hybrids, and in semester-long or accelerated formats.

    Pima Community College is in Tucson, an inclusive oasis in the Arizona desert. With a population of about 1 million, metro Tucson is a cosmopolitan community. It is a majority-minority city enriched by an active LGBTQIA+ community and by nearly 150 distinct neighborhoods, from Barrio Anita to Poets Square.

    Located 65 miles from Mexico, Tucson sits on the border-spanning ancestral lands of the Tohono O'odham and Pascua Yaqui peoples and is proud of centuries of Hispanic and Indigenous heritage.

    Environmental stewardship is in Tucson's nature. The city is situated in a valley surrounded by four mountain ranges that create a unique ecosystem encompassing a saguaro-studded desert floor and pine forests on Mount Lemmon. We're bracketed on the East and West sides by Saguaro National Park and we're committed to planting 1 million trees by 2030.
