2.9 College Committees Policy

The President of the College is authorized to create appropriate committees and to appoint representative employees to such committees, both standing and ad hoc, deemed necessary to support and enhance the mission and effectiveness of the institution.

The Chief Academic Officer will annually recommend to the President the appointments of advisory committee members to assure the academic currency and economic development potential of each program.

2.9.1 Career and Technical Advisory Committee Procedures (Adopted 10-1-990; Revised 4-7-2003)

A. Membership. The program committees should have a minimum of 12 members to ensure reasonable meeting attendance with representation from business, industry and labor. In addition, members should be selected to represent diverse geographic, gender and ethnic viewpoints. Program graduates and personal friends of the instructor(s) involved should be only minimally represented.

B. Membership Term. Members will be appointed to three-year terms.

C. Meetings. Two Advisory Committee meetings will be scheduled each academic year (one in the fall term and one in the spring term). Advisory committee meetings are intended to serve as opportunities to receive advice and counsel on current workforce needs, the relevance of programs to meet these needs, the development of plans to support the programs, faculty qualifications, curricular content, equipment facilities and placement of graduates. Each meeting date will have an agenda published and distributed two weeks prior to the meeting. Minutes will be recorded for each meeting with copies distributed to members and filed in the office of the administrator responsible for career and technical education.
