Fountainhead College of Technology's Program Advisory Committee (PAC) is a distinguished group of professionals who provide feedback to college faculty and administrators to ensure that the curriculum and facilities are 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 to review and bring real-world experience and insight to our curriculum and facilities. Two meetings are held at the college yearly, and written minutes of each meeting are maintained.
Board members are appointed for two-year terms with an option for serving additional terms. Membership is determined by qualifications in accordance with ACCSC regulations.
Program Advisory Committee duties include:
- Review facilities, equipment and program curricula, and comment as to their objectives, content and length, and the adequacy of facilities and equipment.
- Review and comment on new programs, including the appropriateness of curriculum objectives, content and length.
- Review and comment on student completion and placement.
