Pima Community College has reached a milestone as it seeks reaffirmation of accreditation with online publication of an initial draft of its Institutional Self-Study Report. 

When the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), the College’s accreditor, placed PCC on probation in April 2013, it directed the College to conduct an Institutional Self-Study, a top-to-bottom self-examination of College processes, policies and goals for continuous improvement. The Self-Study Report is the document describing the findings of the Self-Study.

Employees, students and community members can read the draft Self-Study Report on the Pima Addresses Probation webpage and comment anonymously through June 1.

The College will make substantial edits to the draft and must submit a final document to the HLC by July 31. From September, 15-17, a team from the HLC will visit the College to evaluate whether PCC has addressed the HLC’s concerns and meets its Criteria for Accreditation.

“I am looking forward to sharing the findings of the Self-Study Report with the HLC and to the visit by the HLC evaluation team, when we can demonstrate the progress the College has made as it seeks to regain the fullest confidence of the our accreditor and the public, thus, reaffirming our accreditation,” Chancellor Lee D. Lambert said in a message to the College community.
