Career and Technical Programs

Advisory committees play important role

Advisory committees are an important part of a Career and Technical Program's success. They serve to advise program directors and contribute to the program's overall success. Committee members include college administration and faculty, as well as external stakeholders, community partners, employers etc. Each committee meets at least once each semester.

Advisory committees are consulted on issues such as curriculum, certificate requirements, and employer/employee needs assessment. They are vital in helping a program assess the needs, expectations, and satisfaction of the groups the program seeks to serve. Advisory committees can help a program evaluate its use of personnel and physical resources. External members, such as employers, can provide insight into their changing needs as well as strengths and weaknesses of program graduates. Community resources and partnerships are vital to most occupational programs. The advisory committee process allows those partners to play an active role in the program's decisions and future direction. For example, each advisory committee has, through the input of its members, identified the program's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
