Pima Community College is also currently in probationary status due to poor managing of funds and a director who likes to sexually harass women. I
know a dean of one of the colleges who is retiring early because he cannot put up with the politically correct status quot.
Pima Community College slapped with 2 years of probation
Could then lose its accreditation if pervasive problems aren't fixed
Pima Community College has been given two years to fix its pervasive problems or effectively go out of business.
A sanction widely expected became official Wednesday when the college learned it's been put on probation by its accreditor, the Chicago-based Higher
The change in status sparked renewed calls from faculty for the resignations of longtime Governing Board members, whose conduct the accreditor has
called into question.
The probation decision was made in response to a recent report that faulted the ethics and competence of college executives and board members.
PCC's problems ranged from corrupt contracting practices - in which executives knowingly broke rules to approve expensive, unbid contracts - to the
board's mishandling of sexual harassment complaints against former Chancellor Roy Flores, according to the report from a fact-finding team the
accreditor sent to Tucson in January.
Flores and other senior officials - many of whom still work at PCC - created a "culture of fear and retribution" that fractured the school's
workforce, the report said.
PCC's "dysfunctional" board failed for years to detect or act upon problems, it said.
Since this is political we may as well remind everyone that these are the same people who heavily supported the concept of "Baja Arizona." . . . .
What a bunch of tool-bags.
America's 51st state: Baja Arizona?
No joke, say Pima County Dems who want split from 'un-American' part of Grand Canyon State
TUCSON, Ariz. — Forget calls for unity and common ground.
The former Democratic Party chairman for Pima County is so fed up with Arizona's conservative politics that he wants the county to secede and form a
51st state in southern Arizona.
Paul Eckerstrom says he wants to restore the region's credibility as a place that is welcoming to others. He and fellow Tucson attorney Peter Hormel
have formed a political committee called Start Our State to explore process of making Pima County a separate state.
The same idiots . . . I guarantee you there is not a single member of the PCC staff who is not an Arizona Democrat.
