Self-Study update & Monitoring Report status

Communication sent to employees on July 3, 2013 by Provost Jerry Migler with an update on the Self-Study process and announcing that the draft monitoring report is available online for review and comment.


Dear Colleagues,

Here are the latest updates regarding our progress in addressing HLC concerns:

Self-Study Committees

Our HLC Institutional Self-Study was officially launched last Friday morning with a kick-off meeting at the 29th St. Coalition Center. The primary purpose of this meeting was for the committees to get organized, determine future meetings times and dates and to start identifying evidence that needs to be collected for their area of focus. The kick-off meeting began with a general session (view general session PowerPoint slides) for all the committee members followed by breakout sessions for the fourteen committees. The next meeting of the Self-Study committees will be Friday, July 12th from 9-11 a.m. at the 29th St. Coalition Center.

Committee membership will be posted in the very near future. Due to scheduling and time commitment concerns, some individuals initially identified to serve on a committee are not able to continue, and adjustments to committee membership are underway. Once these adjustments are finalized, the committee memberships will be posted on the College’s website in PCC Addresses Probation.

Monitoring Report

We are pleased to report that the first draft of the HLC Monitoring Report regarding Assumed Practices is available for review by PCC employees, students and community members. The Monitoring Report is accessible online (click here for access to Monitoring Report draft). Accompanying the report is an online tool for providing feedback to the Writing Team. Although additional work remains in collecting and analyzing the feedback to the report, as well as in final editing, the Monitoring Report is well on its way to being submitted by the deadline of August 1, 2013.

On behalf of the College, I want to extend a sincere thank you to the Writing Team. Team members Rachelle Howell, Alison Colter-Mack, Dolores Duran-Cerda, Duff Galda, Lorraine Morales and Paul Schwalbach have spent considerable time (including evenings and weekends) in researching and writing the report. Thanks also to the many people who took time to visit with the team members about their experiences with the concerns and issues addressed in the Monitoring Report.
