College Policies

Pima Community College's Board of Governors enacts, rescinds and modifies policies for the college. This authority is given by the Arizona State Legislature.

PCC is in the process of transitioning from a three-tiered system of Board Policies, College Regulations and Standard Practice Guides to a two-tiered system of Board Policies and Administrative Procedures.  This change will reorganize existing policies and use a different numbering system.

Board Policies

  • establish institutional goals
  • stipulate a stance or direction Pima College must take to pursue those goals

All Board of Governor actions involving Board Policies must occur at a public meeting.  Details on how the Board of Governors act on Board Policies are available in Board Policy 1101.

College Regulations

  • state the purpose of the Board Policy
  • delineate scope and responsibility
  • define the general parameters for developing the related Standard Practice Guide
  • identify responsible parties

Standard Practice Guides

  • detail the process of implementing a regulation
  • give direction to those who conduct activities under the regulation

Administrative Procedure

  • provides specific guidance to College employees in implementing and enacting Board Policies in the day-to-day operations of the College.
