Facilities Management

Mission Statement

The Facilities Management Department is dedicated to providing an attractive, clean, accessible, safe, and well planned educational environment to facilitate campus activities and support the mission and goals of the institution.  All efforts of the department are service based and satisfactory customer service is an essential component and goal of all departmental undertakings.


Arizona Western College’s (AWC) Facilities Management Department (FM) consists of over 50 full and part time employees tasked with providing custodial, groundskeeping, maintenance, and repair of all equipment and facilities on all AWC campuses.  FM maintains over 725,000 square feet of building space throughout Yuma and La Paz Counties.

Facilities Management is committed to enhancing environmental awareness, responsibility, and sustainability throughout the College community.  The principles of environmental sustainability are central to all FM activities, and by integrating these principles into all aspects of its operations, planning, and policy, AWC enhances its role as a leader within the greater community.  FM will set an example of responsible environmental stewardship through its ongoing commitment to incorporate sustainable practices into its daily decision-making processes and support resource conservation, reduction of waste and pollution, recycling, minimizing our environmental footprint, and investing in the local community.

The Director of District Operations (DDO) is responsible for operations and maintenance of all AWC campuses.  The DDO is also responsible for implementing and maintaining preventative maintenance programs to insure equipment and facilities run at peak efficiency to support the AWC educational mission.

The Director of Risk Management and Special Projects (DRM) is responsible for environmental and safety compliance, as well as insurance for the College.  The DRM is also responsible for special projects as assigned.

The Director of Construction and Renovations (DCR) oversees the designing, contracting, and construction of new buildings and facilities on all AWC campuses.  The DCR is also responsible for renovation projects within AWC buildings and facilities.

FM employees take pride in supporting the educational goals of AWC and strive to provide the best facilities available in order to fulfill our most important responsibility, meeting the needs of our students and community every day.
