Program Advisory Committee

PAC-May-2011webFountainhead College of Technology's Program Advisory Committee (PAC) is a distinguished group of professionals who provide feedback to the college faculty to ensure that our curriculum is relevant, up-to-date and focused on best practices in the industries that we serve.

Each program area at Fountainhead has an affiliated PAC that is comprised of employers in that career field. The PAC meets with faculty and administrators biannually to review and bring real-world experience and insight to our curriculum and facilities. At least one meeting is held at the college yearly, and written minutes of each meeting are maintained. Program Advisory Committee duties include:

  1. Review facilities, equipment and program curricula, and comment as to their objectives, content and length, and the adequacy of facilities and equipment.
  2. Review and comment on new programs, including the appropriateness of curriculum objectives, content and length.
  3. Review and comment on student completion and placement.
