Program Advisory Council

Program Advisory Council

Westcliff University has established a Program Advisory Council (PAC). The PAC is comprised of respected representatives from segments of the marketplace which are directly related to our instructional programs.

The Council members provide the university with detailed advice regarding the adequacy of our program objectives, curriculum and course materials. They likewise review the manner in which the courses are offered to the students and the resulting achievement of our students in relationship to meeting the specific, changing needs of the marketplace.

The duties of the Council regarding each program within the University are:

  • Review instructional program needs for the students
  • Help identify and assess labor market requirements
  • Review and advise about the establishment and maintenance of realistic and practical instructional programs
  • Participate in developing community understanding and support for our programs
  • Provide information regarding new developments that require changes in our curricula
  • Review the various case studies used in the courses
  • Assist the university in reviewing legislation affecting our programs
