Public Comment Sought as PCC Prepares for Accreditor’s Visit

May 1, 2014

Community invited to offer insights directly to HLC May 1-August 1

Tucson, AZ -- Pima Community College is seeking comments from the public about PCC in preparation for its evaluation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), PCC’s accrediting organization.

From May 1 to August 1, members of the community, as well as students and PCC employees, are invited to submit comments directly to the HLC regarding PCC in one of two ways:

  • In writing, by addressing comments to:

Public Comment on Pima Community College

The Higher Learning Commission
230 South LaSalle Street, Suite 7-500
Chicago, IL 60604-1411

At the direction of the HLC, the College is conducting an Institutional Self-Study, a comprehensive review of PCC policies, procedures and goals. On May 12, a draft of the Self-Study Report, the document describing the findings of the Self-Study in detail, will be posted on the Pima Addresses Probation webpage [] for the public to review through June 1.

PCC will host a visit on September 15-17 with a team representing the HLC, which on April 6, 2013 placed PCC on probation. The team will review the institution’s ongoing ability to meet the Commission’s Criteria for Accreditation. While on probation, PCC remains fully accredited.
