A brief description of the policies and procedures that ensure community stakeholder engagement is applied systematically and regularly across the institution’s activities:

Career and technical programs at the college each have an Advisory Board composed of area experts and potential employers to provide guidance on how the programs are serving/not serving the needs of area employers in terms of job training and/or supply of new employees. This also ensures we are providing the best service to our students with an education that can lead to employment.

These individuals are nominated either by self or others. The Board Development Committee (below) will select the finalists and these will be approved by Board of Trustees.
