Pima Community College's governing board to receive training

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Pima Community College is responding to poor grades from its accreditor by sending longtime members of its governing board back to school.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the board members are to be taught about topics that include procurement, sexual harassment and community engagement.

An investigation by the Chicago-based Higher Learning Commission found corrupt hiring and contracting practices as well as mishandling of sexual harassment claims.

The commission put the college on probation, saying its board is dysfunctional and ethically challenged.

A plan drafted by a consultant calls for the board members to attend workshops and retreats over the next two years.
