TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) --  Pima Community College has sent a final plan it hopes will get it off of probation. The college sent a self-study report to the Highler Learning Commission Wednesday -- a day before the deadline.

The study involved the work of hundreds of employees, students and community members -- who examined all facets of the college.

"I want the community to know that we are moving down the path to becoming a leading community colleges in the country committed to serving students -- a full range of diversity - reaching out to business and we're being responsive to their needs. Most of the faculty I've spoken with feel a change and a sense of hope and optimism for the future of Pima Community College. It's a new day." said Chancellor Lee Lambert.

"Without a doubt. It's so much better. I love coming to work everyday. There's not that the fear around anymore. Things are real positive," said Edgar Soto, PCC Athletic Director.    

The next step -- PCC is waiting for a Higher Learning Commission visit in mid-September.
