Advisory Committees Lend Assistance To VGCC
“You are our liaison to the community,” Vance-Granville Community College President Robert A. Miller told members of the college’s advisory committees who gathered Oct. 22 for their annual meeting.
There are about 30 advisory committees composed of four to a dozen members each from Vance, Granville, Warren and Franklin counties who are actively employed or engaged in career field for which the college offers training. VGCC alumni also serve on the committees.
At the Oct. 22 meetings, VGCC program heads told committee members of new developments in their programs and sought advice on how to tailor classes and training to better prepare students to meet employment needs. Advisors shared information on what is happening in their fields of expertise and what the college can do to help students get ready to enter the workforce.
Advisory committee members are available to confer with program heads throughout the year when their expertise may be needed by the college.
“Your time and input are very special to Vance-Granville Community College,” Miller told the members of the committees as he thanked them for their service.
