Program Advisory Committees

We involve our community in the creation and administration of our academic programs.

Program Advisory Committees (PACs) provide community input for our academic offerings and help to develop curriculum, monitor program progress and serve as ambassadors for the program. PACs are made up of people from our local communities in the businesses, industries and services that our students are preparing to work in once they complete their education.
