3.12 Program Advisory Committee

Advisory committees are an integral part of the instructional program of the Alexandria Technical & Community College.

It is a policy of the college that each academic program must be reviewed by an advisory committee. Some programs with a natural affinity may choose to have combined advisory meetings. Members of advisory committees should include people employed in the occupation and business or at a supervisory level of that occupation. It is also highly recommended that former graduates be included as members of each advisory committee and possibly, a student.

Program advisory committees must meet at least once during the school year. Additional meetings may be called if desired. Each advisory meeting must have minutes taken and a list of members in attendance. These must be on file in the Academic Affairs Office.

A General Advisory Committee shall also be in operation during the school year. General Advisory Committee meetings are called by the President or the Chairperson. Its members include people from business and industry along with parents, students, and graduates.
