  • Email responses to the Curriculum Committee on specific issues that arise from time to time regarding program learning outcomes
  • As needed in person meetings, teleconferences or Webinar meetings to review and discuss proposed major program revisions, including major updates to program learning outcomes

The Academic Dean coordinates with the Advisory Council members and College as needed to provide feedback via email for new programs and any existing programs currently in a review process.  The Advisory Council may use email, online surveys, the College's project site, or any other appropriate secure technology to log activity and feedback.
