Advisory committees take an active role in helping [the school] implement its goals and objectives. They make recommendations or give opinions, but do not have any true decision-making authority. More specifically, advisory committees provide input on the quality and relevance of our education instruction.
The School of Radiography Advisory Committee provides a two-way system of communication between the program and employers. Some areas of focus for this committee are:
- Curriculum & Instruction
- Student Services
- Equipment and Facilities
- Industry Trends
A minimum of two meetings will be held per year.
