PCC looking for volunteers for review work

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

As Pima Community College tries to pull itself out of probation, school officials are turning to the community for help. 

Officials are admitting it is a lot of tough, long-term work and likened the volunteers to foot soldiers.

These volunteers would work with the college to find and solve some of PCC's problems.  The Higher Learning Commission put PCC on probation in April, after it cited concerns related to integrity and financial management among other things.

What PCC is doing now is conducting a top to bottom review.  That is where they need the community's help, to work side by side with administration, faculty and staff.

Volunteers would be interviewing employees and students, looking at policies and then finding ways to fix those concerns.

PCC officials admit this is neither a quick nor easy process, it might take a year or longer; but it is critical.

The college is looking for two dozen public volunteers to join its team. 

PCC executives ask potential candidates to fill out this survey by Tuesday, June 25th, at 10:00 a.m.
