PROGRAM ADVISORY COMMITTEES: More than 200 employers invest their time as subject matter experts to assure Columbus Technical College’s academic programs of study produce graduates ready to work and/or ready to transfer to senior universities. The employers meet a minimum of two times per year to discuss such topics as curriculum, instructional technology, assessments, equipment, library resource needs, enrollment, retention, graduation, licensure/registries/certifications, job placement and/or transfers, college mission, vision, values, or other topics of interest. The employers may provide information regarding new technology in the workplace, job outlook, satisfaction with graduates, or other topics. Additional advisory boards exist to support non-teaching areas of the college including Library Services and Economic Development, to name a couple. These partnership keeps Columbus Technical College grounded, focused on our mission, and eager to have successful graduates, services, and programs.
