Purpose of the Report

The purpose of the report is to outline a plan for the College to establish compliance with HLC Assumed Practices A.4 and B.2.c by July 2014.

In reviewing College practices, the HLC determined that:

  • The College is out of compliance with Assumed Practice A.4, “The institution provides clear information regarding its procedures for receiving complaints and grievances from students and other constituencies, responds to them in a timely manner, and analyzes them to improve its processes” because the fact-finding team found that College did not respond to allegations and complaints about the former Chancellor in a timely manner and following appropriate and up-to-date policies and procedures.
  • The College is out of compliance with Assumed Practice B.2.c, “Faculty participate substantially in oversight of the curriculum—its development and implementation, academic substance, currency, and relevance for internal and external constituencies” because the fact-finding team found that faculty did not participate substantially in the review and adoption of the new admissions policy.

Draft Report

A draft of the Monitoring Report was made available for public review and comment on July 3, 2013.  Comments were able to be submitted until Sunday, July 14, 2013.

Writing Committee

The Monitoring Report writing committee is working to develop the monitoring report so that the College can file it with the Higher Learning Commission no later than August 1, 2013.  The report will outline Pima's plan to conform with HLC practices relating to complaints and grievance procedures, and to faculty oversight of curriculum.

The members of the team are:

  • Rachelle Howell, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Grants & Planning and Institutional Research
  • Lorraine Morales, Vice President of Instruction, East Campus
  • Dolores Duran-Cerda, Special Assistant to the Provost
  • Alison Colter-Mack, Human Resources Advanced Analyst
  • Paul Schwalbach, Public Information Manager
