PCC welcomes new interim chancellor

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A change in leadership comes today for Pima Community College, as preparations are made to welcome its new Interim Chancellor to the campus.

PCC's Interim Chancellor, Suzanne Mile's resignation is effective today.  The college is wasting no time, as the new Interim Chancellor, Dr. Zelema Harris will begin Monday and lead the school at least until July. 

Harris comes from St. Louis and spoke with PCC officials this week, via Skype during a board meeting.

In this same meeting employee groups continued to call on board members to resign; while no board members made any indication to do so. 

Right now PCC faces probation and possible loss of accreditation after a report from the Higher Learning Commission criticized PCC leadership, from claims of sexual harassment against former Chancellor Roy Flores to an environment of fear and intimidation at the college. 

PCC is still waiting to hear back from the HLC on whether the college will be placed on probation.  A decision could come any day now.

The Board continues its search for a new chancellor and does not have any meetings scheduled till next month.
