Chapter 9: Maricopa – Special Projects

The Hispanic Research Center works closely with other institutions and projects.  


Pauline Bailey was my secretary when I served as vice chancellor at the Maricopa Community Colleges. She was a wonderful secretary: intelligent, focused, hard-working, efficient. She was a perfect lady… and still is. In many ways, she made me look good. ¡Gracias, Pauline!
