Advisory Committees for the Humanities.
Brawer, Florence B.
Suggested guidelines for the effective implementation and operation of advisory committees for the humanities at community colleges are provided in a question-and-answer format. The guide first defines the advisory committee as a coterie of individuals assigned the task of providing guidance in a particular area of interest. It then examines: (1) the role the humanities advisory committee can play in providing visibility for the college and its humanities program; (2) the selection of committee members from among individuals outside the educational profession; (3) the responsibilities undertaken by the committee to assist the college in relating its humanities programs to the needs of the community; (4) the educational questions which should be addressed in performing those responsibilities; (5) the administrative steps in planning committee formation; (6) the responsibilities of the committee chairperson, secretary, and college representative; (7) the need for committee members from within the college administration to familiarize other members with the humanities programs at the college; (8) the necessity of devising an annual program of activities for the committee; (9) the procedures involved in conducting committee meetings; (10) the items to be addressed in committee agenda; and (11) criteria for evaluation of advisory committee effectiveness.
