One Maricopa

The executive leadership within the Maricopa County Community College District supports the Chancellor and the District’s mission by focusing efforts and resources on student success, public stewardship and increasing partnerships and collaboration among the 10 colleges. 

During fall 2009, the Governing Board commissioned an external consultant to conduct a major efficiency study of the entire Maricopa County Community College District. Based on the consultant’s findings, the District experienced a major collaborative initiative called 21st Century Maricopa, specifically designed to help students become more successful and to promote the efficiency and effectiveness of District operations. 21st Century Maricopa utilized cross-functional teams from employees throughout the District who researched and then provided improvement strategies in the following areas:

  • Student Success
  • Human Resources and Employee Development
  • Business Systems
  • Technology Services
