The Maricopa vision
" I was privileged to work with some of the most outstanding Community College leaders in the country. "
" Being on the foundation board makes me feel like I'm still very much a part of it. I have a great love and admiration for the colleges. "
Our history so far …
Arizona’s first community college, the Phoenix Junior College (now Phoenix College), was established.
Maricopa Community Colleges began as the Maricopa County Junior College District.
We updated our name to “Maricopa Community” to emphasize the general public and to best reflect the constituencies we serve.
