An Examination of the Organizational Workforce Advisory Committees in the Lone Star College System
Howard, Ruben A., II
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
Institutions of higher learning face challenges in accessing the effectiveness of workforce advisory committees. State governing bodies supply broad guidelines and are the only measuring tool given to these institutions to assess the effectiveness of their committees. Organizational models found in the literature do not include state guidelines and are therefore inadequate to measure the effectiveness of workforce advisory committees adequately. This qualitative case study involved an examination of workforce advisory committees in the Lone Star College System by interviewing community workforce advisory members and accessing workforce advisory committee meeting minutes. Workforce advisory committee members answered research questions detailing how institutions of higher learning measured the effectiveness of workforce advisory committees given the outputs of effectiveness by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and how institutions of higher learning measure the effectiveness of workforce advisory committees given the outputs of effectiveness in Genheimer's model. The study included both qualitative and quantitative data from semistructured interviews with advisory committee members. Community workforce advisory committee members shared their thoughts on certain aspects of member selection, input criteria that contributed to Genheimer's effectiveness outputs of effectiveness, and state-supplied outputs of effectiveness.
