PVCC’s administrative team provides overall leadership in the context of our core values – innovation, integrity, inclusiveness and public stewardship. Four interconnected divisions – academic affairs, student affairs, administrative services, and information technology – report directly to the college president. Under each of the respective divisions, led by a vice president or dean, is a cadre of functional unit level leaders who implement the college’s planning objectives. Within academic affairs, each of the instructional units is led by an elected division chair, fully engaged in academic leadership.

The President's Leadership Team (PLT) meets weekly to discuss and act upon college-wide issues. A primary focus of the team is to present and act upon ideas that will enhance learning throughout the college and improve student success. PLT also addresses college operational issues and monitors progress on activities that support our strategic directions and priorities. Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to share ideas through either the established channels (e.g. committees, supervisors) or directly with a PLT team member.

A critical interlocking aspect of the organizational structure is the College Leadership Council, in which members of the President’s Leadership Team (PLT) lead stakeholder groups in addressing one of the current college strategic planning priorities. Each of these stakeholder groups is populated with faculty and staff representing all four divisions. As a result, PVCC maintains and supports both vertical (hierarchical) and horizontal (cross-division interdependence) leadership structures.
