    Pima recently was named one of the top workplaces in Arizona by Forbes magazine, which analyzed such factors as safety of work environment, competitiveness of compensation, opportunities for advancement and openness to telework.

    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. Employees can expect to participate in innovative, flexible scheduling, in keeping with the College's vision, to provide access to learning without the limits of time, place, or distance.

    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.

    The city has a history of welcoming everyone, whatever their circumstance, wherever their birthplace. Since the City Council's passage of resolution 21944 in 2012, Tucson has been an official "immigrant welcoming city," in recognition that "our city's identity is built upon its promise of equality, esteem for diversity, and commitment to innovation." Because of the pioneering work of a Presbyterian church on the city's predominantly Hispanic South Side, Tucson is commonly recognized as the birthplace of the sanctuary movement. Each year, some 1,000 refugees settle in Tucson, aided by local chapters of national networks of resettlement and social-service agencies.

    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, we're perennially listed among the most bicycle-friendly cities in the U.S, and we're committed to planting 1 million trees by 2030.
