Hagerstown Junior College Advisory Committee Handbook.
Hagerstown Junior Coll., MD.
The use of advisory committees in occupational education is a natural and desirable extension of lay participation in education and an efficient and logical way of keeping programs current. At Hagerstown Junior College (HJC), the primary functions of an advisory committee are to provide advice and counsel regarding the development, maintenance, operation, and modification of occupational programs; to suggest types of educational and technical services needed by the community; and to participate in program evaluation. The committee is an advisory body, composed of community and professional representatives who are concerned with the quality of education of their future employees and who wish to help HJC use its resources wisely. While there is no single criterion for member selection, committee members should have personal interest, sufficient time, current knowledge of their field of specialization, ability and willingness to work with the committee, and commitment to graduate placement. HJC advisory committees are generally composed of six to twelve members who serve for a period of one year and who meet at least once each semester. Each committee has a chairperson who presides over the meetings and a secretary responsible for communications with the members. In addition to the material covered above, this handbook provides information on committee procedures and guidelines for chairpersons and secretaries and outlines the philosophy and objectives of HJC.
