Pima Community College has named a longtime teacher and administrator as its new president of the Northwest Campus.

David Doré, who was the dean of instruction for career and technical education at Mesa Community College, will begin his new job on July 1, the college said in a news release Wednesday.

His appointment is subject to approval from the college's Governing Board.

Doré has a doctorate of education from Pepperdine University, a master's of business administration from Georgetown University, a master's of education from Boston College, a master's of theological studies from Santa Clara University and a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Gannon University.

He also served in a variety of positions at San Francisco Community College District in California from 1996 to 2013

"David's wide-ranging background serving students, combined with his administrative expertise, makes him a most welcome addition to the college," Chancellor Lee D. Lambert said.

Darla Zirbes, acting Northwest Campus president, will return to PCC's Community Campus to serve as vice president of instruction.

The Northwest Campus, 7600 N. Shannon Road, serves about 4,300 students. The college is still looking for leaders at three of its other campuses.
