Local Advisory Committees

At NPRC, we take pride in our quality programming. To ensure this quality and to provide relevant programs and courses to our communities, local advisory committees have been developed. The main purpose of these committees is to help ensure the knowledge and skills students receive in the classroom are current with what is needed in the workforce while establishing a continual partnership between the programs and business and industry.

Members of these committees are selected from the community by recommendations from the NPRC Board of Trustees, staff, business representatives, and other advisory committee members. These members serve in a voluntary, consultative capacity and have expertise, experience, and enthusiasm in the career area for which they are serving. Activities of these groups may include:

  • Curriculum development
  • Assessment of community needs
  • Student placement in jobs
  • Identifying facilities and obtaining equipment
  • Public relations
  • Staff development
  • Student recruitment
  • Legislative and financial support
