Administrators at Pima Community College have evaluated 125 policy areas and identified 19 in need of work, a record the chancellor called pretty good.

The areas in need of improvement correspond with the reasons the Higher Learning Commission put the college on probation last spring.

The college is forming committees to work on some of the issues, but others will take less work, Chancellor Lee Lambert said.

“It depends on what the area is, in some cases it may be simply as making sure that we have a policy and procedure that clearly identifies the expectations with regards to the institution," he said.

The college is on track with its goal to submit documentation regarding its plans for improvement by July 2014, Lambert said. That deadline was set by the Higher Learning Commission.
