Citizens Advisory Committees for Virginia Highlands Community College. A Handbook of Information, Policies, and Procedures. Revised.
Virginia Highlands Community Coll., Abingdon.
At Virginia Highlands Community College (VHCC), citizens advisory committees (CACs) were instrumental in the initiation of the first programs and services at the college and have continued to suggest needed additions, deletions, and modifications of offerings as the college has grown. This handbook outlines basic guidelines and procedures for citizens advisory committees. Following an introduction to the role of CACs, the handbook provides a brief history of VHCC from its inception in 1970 through the establishment of the 33 programs currently offered. The next section reviews VHCC's statement of purpose, and describes the college's programs in transfer education, continuing education, cooperative education, developmental studies, general education, occupational/technical education, and specialized regional and community services. Next, a flow chart presents VHCC's administrative organization and information is provided on the specific functions of VHCC's governing bodies. The final sections of the handbook focus on the CAC's, including information on: (1) the general advisory committee, the seven curriculum advisory committees, and the four special advisory committees; (2) the functions of the committees in the areas of needs assessment, program evaluation, student selection, and program development; (3) procedures for identifying, selecting, and appointing committee members; (4) qualifications of members; (5) terms and duties of office; and (6) current CAC members, including members' addresses, terms of appointment, and occupational field or area of expertise.
