Pima Community College will hold campus forums to provide updates on the progress PCC has made as it emerges from probation, and to answer questions.

Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Jerry Migler and other administrators from the Provost’s Office will lead the hour-long forums.

The schedule:

October 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.

October 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.

October 30:

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

October 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 said. “Now that the new academic year has started, we want to share the progress we have made over the summer and answer questions.”

The Higher Learning Commission, the College’s accreditor, placed PCC on probation in April and directed it to conduct a Self-Study, a top-to-bottom review of operations, in order to identify deficiencies, make improvements and meet HLC standards for accreditation.

Since them, PCC has formed 14 committees comprising some 300 PCC employees, students and community member volunteers to conduct the Self-Study. In August the HLC accepted a report detailing the College’s plan to conform to HLC standards regarding complaints and grievances and faculty oversight of curriculum.

The Pima Addresses Probation webpage contains resources related to probation and accreditation, including a chart showing the College’s progress toward reaffirming accreditation, and an email, accred-questions@pima.edu, for students and the public to send questions.

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.
