AZTEC PRESS (PIMA COMMUNITY COLLEGE) -- Daisy Rodriguez Pitel started her new position as associate director for Pima Community College’s International Studies Services this past summer. She previously worked as advanced program manager of student life and educational outreach at the West Campus. Rodriguez Pitel had put together big programs in the past, including Justice Advocacy Dialogue Empowerment (a social-justice leadership training), Peer Mentors and Bécalos. She spent her time in California, where she attended San Francisco State University and majored in speech communication. It was there that she fell in love with the college environment. “College is not only taking classes but learning life skills,” she said. “You develop interpersonal skills, critical thinking, time management, cultural awareness and sensitivity.”
