SECTION ONE: ADVISORY COMMITTEES
1.01 Business and industry participation is a vital element in offering relevant workforce education programs. Local citizens will be recruited to assist the College faculty and administration with the planning and evaluating of workforce education programs and services. The advice given may be related to facilities and equipment, curriculum development and renewal, cooperative learning plans, professional development of instructors, and employment opportunities.
1.02 Associate Deans of Instruction are responsible for ensuring advisory committees are formed, and for guiding the committee chair to ensure the committee conducts its activities in compliance with rules published in the Guidelines for Instructional Programs in Workforce Education (GIPWE), which were adopted by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. A record of all committee meeting minutes will be stored in the respective Associate Dean of Instruction’s office.
