Program Advisory Committee (PAC)

(Reporting Channel = Vice President of Academic Affairs)(Nursing = Dean, School of Nursing)           

The Program advisory committee is lay committee appointed to review the established curricula of the program, instructional-related program materials, equipment and facilities, and student achievement outcomes as a means to provide the College with an external review of its programs.  As such, they do not establish policy and/or procedures nor become involved in program or department operations. 

The College must have a diverse program advisory committee that includes qualified representatives from the employment community, practitioners, and others from the field of higher education, regulators, etc. as appropriate.  Program advisory committee meetings must include at least three members in attendance that represent the employment community and/or practitioners from the program area and at least one individual qualified to review and comments on the program’s general education and distance education requirements.
