The Partnership for College Completion (PCC) is proud to welcome Veronica Villanueva as its first Development Manager. Veronica interned for the College and University Partnerships Team at PCC last Spring. During this amazing experience, Veronica learned first-hand the work that PCC does in advancing equity in higher education. Fast forward to this summer, where she now serves as PCC’s first Development Manager. Veronica looks forward to continuing to advocate for students of color. 

“I am truly thrilled to step into my role as Development Manager at PCC. Having long admired the incredible impact and transformative work that PCC has accomplished, I am eager to contribute my passion and dedication to furthering PCC’s vision and mission,” Villanueva said.  

Veronica previously worked at Harold Washington College, as the inaugural Director of First-Year Experience, where she collaborated with the college’s director of research and planning and with the district office partners to create a framework for the first-year experience (FYE) framework. During her time at HWC, Veronica also served as Coordinator of Academic Support and as an Admissions Specialist.

During her free time, Veronica enjoys reading, volunteering, spending time with her family, trying out new coffee shops, and supporting small businesses.
