Each program or cluster of related programs has an advisory committee to ensure the quality of the curriculum, studies, and diplomas. These committees ensure that our programs are up-to-date and relevant to the industry, businesses, and society.
The Ministry of Colleges and Universities requires that each program or cluster of related programs have a consultative committee to ensure the quality of the curriculum, studies, and degrees.
The members of a program consultative committee (PCC) are chosen from outside the College among leaders in their field for the diversity of their experience and expertise in the field targeted by the program. PCCs are very valuable resources for the College. They report to the Board of Directors through the College President.
PCC members are key players who contribute to the academic success of students. They bring a perspective informed by the realities of the industry that is essential to the development of a program that produces resilient, competent, and confident graduates.
Consultative committees have the mandate to:
- participate in the development, revision, and study of program content to meet the requirements of the community,
- provincial standards, the business world, and industry;
- participate in program evaluation, taking into account the felt needs at the local, provincial, and national, and even international levels;
- make recommendations on the need to create new programs, related to the same field, that meet the needs of the community.
Consultative committees are composed of people independent of the College who represent various community sectors and backgrounds, have a direct interest, and possess varied knowledge and experience in the professional field that is the subject of the program.
Program coordinators, faculty, administrative staff, support staff, and students are considered resource persons and do not have voting rights. Membership is by invitation. The term of office is three years and may be renewed, if applicable.
- Meetings are usually held once or twice a year.
- The quorum is a minimum of 4 external members.
- Decisions are made by consensus.
- The vote may be cast electronically, if necessary.
Collège Boréal has carefully prepared an initiation guide for members of its advisory committees. If you have any questions or would like to join an advisory committee, please contact the postsecondary program managers in question.
