The Advisory Committee in the Community College: An Overview.
Harrison, William G.
Advisory committees are important liaisons between colleges and their communities. If a college is truly interested in serving its community, it should utilize advisory committees to advise it on matters of curriculum planning. Following a detailed discussion of the various aspects of advisory committee selection and functioning, the author recommends the following: (1) that more boards and/or presidents be made aware of the positive effects of advisory committees; (2) student participation in the operation of advisory committees; (3) inservice training for administrators and faculty in the intricacies of initiating and operating advisory committees; (4) more recognition of advisory committee members; (5) the institution of General Advisory Committees as well as Occupational Advisory Committees; (6) automatic board approval of administrator or faculty-selected advisory committee nominees; (7) that advisory committees provide suggestions for the implementation of any recommendation for action they submit; (8) advisory committee self-evaluation and college-sponsored training in group procedures if the committee feels the need for it; (9) that advisory committees focus their attention on students as well as college and community; and (10) that advisory committees evaluate the product of the program as well as the program itself.
