HLC OKs PCC probation plan

The Higher Learning Commission has given the nod to a Pima Community College plan to correct several administrative shortcomings that led to the school being placed on probation, HLC officials said Tuesday.

The national accrediting agency OKed Pima's "sound plans," laid out in a monitoring report submitted last month, to bring the college in compliance with standards related to complaints and grievances and faculty oversight of curriculum.

Pima Chancellor Lee Lambert called the move "unequivocal good news" in an email to college employees.

From an HLC letter sent Tuesday to PCC:

Though the report has outlined a complex agenda to address each of these Assumed Practices, the College will succeed in fulfilling its plans for conformity if it applies the same rigor and organization to the tasks as it did in developing the monitoring report.

Lambert said the acceptance of the report is "an indication to students, the public and PCC employees that the College is on the right course as it works to regain the fullest confidence of the HLC and the community."
