Pima Community College has been placed on probation by its accreditor, the Higher Learning Commission.

(Read the HLC notification on the Accreditation page of the PCC website).

Interim Chancellor Zelema Harris informed PCC employees of the change in the College’s status in a message earlier today. “The HLC reaccredited PCC for 10 years in 2010, and I believe that we can successfully restore the HLC’s and the public’s trust in the College.” (Read Dr. Harris’ message on the Interim Chancellor’s page.)

Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Dr. Jerry Migler has notified students that PCC has been placed on probation.

In an email and announcement on the College’s Intranet, Dr. Migler noted that while PCC is on probation, course transfer from PCC will not be affected, and the College still will be able to offer students financial aid. “The quality of our instruction and programs is undiminished,” Dr. Migler wrote. (Read the Provost’s message on the Accreditation page.)

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
