Advisory Committees

Academic Advisory Committees

The School of Continuing and Professional Studies utilizes academic program advisory committees for different subject areas.

The purpose of these committees is: 

  • To provide ongoing evaluation and consultation on the curriculum
  • To keep curriculum current and updated
  • To incorporate knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values identified by industry representatives
  • To make course learning relevant to students in their chosen fields

With these outcomes in mind, the committees use the following best practices to ensure maximum effectiveness and success:

  • The committees use established techniques for group problem solving and decision making
  • The committees use established processes and procedures for short-range and long-term planning
  • The committees use appropriate techniques for futuristic forecasting and anticipatory planning
