PCC officials to host probation update forums

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

Pima Community College will begin holding meetings with the public Thursday to provide updates on its progress to emerge out of probation.

The Higher Learning Commission placed PCC on probation in April, putting the college in jeopardy of losing its accreditation.

The commission cited concerns related to integrity and financial management. The college has since been reviewing its operations to make improvements.

PCC will host a series of forums throughout October to update the progress.

Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Jerry Migler and other administrators will lead the following hour-long forums:

Oct. 10:

- Downtown Campus, 1255 N. Stone Ave., Amethyst Room, 11 a.m.-noon

- Northwest Campus, 7600 N. Shannon Road, Community Room, 4-5 p.m.

Oct. 24:

- Desert Vista Campus, 5901 S. Calle Santa Cruz, Ocotillo Room, 11 a.m.-noon

- West Campus, 2202 W. Anklam Road, Saguaro Room, 3:30-4:30 p.m.

Oct. 30:

- Community Campus, 401 N. Bonita Ave., A109/112, 9-10 a.m.

Oct. 31:

- East Campus, 8181 E. Irvington Road, Community Room, 1-2 p.m.

"The College has worked hard to keep students and the College community apprised about our activities related to reaffirming accreditation," Dr. Migler stated in a news release. "Now that the new academic year has started, we want to share the progress we have made over the summer and answer questions."
