TUCSON, Ariz. — An oversight body for Pima Community College is sending
investigators to Tucson next week.
They will be looking into recent controversies at the school and are inviting
public input as part of the process.
The visit stems from a string of complaints made about Pima Community’s
personnel, procurement and admission practices and the alleged mishandling of
sexual harassment claims against a former chancellor.
The Arizona Daily Star said a four-person team was
dispatched by the school’s accreditor, the Higher Learning Commission.
They will be in Tucson on Jan. 17-18 to question college governing board
members, administrators, lawyers and others.
Accreditors have the power to force changes if they find things amiss.
