The Advisory Committee and Its Role in Program Planning at the Community College.
Corley, Sherie P.
A discussion is provided of the role of the advisory committee in postsecondary vocational education. First, the development of federal legislation creating advisory committees at the national and state levels, and mandating the formation and defining the duties of local advisory committees is reviewed. The next section explains the process of setting up an occupational advisory committee, covering criteria for selecting committee members, the involvement of college administrators in the organization of the first meetings, organizational structures, and committee tasks. Next, the paper stresses the importance of in-service education to keep the committee appropriately focused, of ongoing communication between the committee and the college administration, and of recognizing the contributions of the individual members of the committee. The final section presents the Oregon State Advisory Council on Career and Vocational Education as a model for the involvement of business, industry, and labor in vocational program evaluations.
