About Program Advisory Committees

Program Advisory Committees help Humber create one of the most dynamic program rosters in Canada by keeping the College connected to the trends and needs of society.

Members interact with other leaders in their fields to help ensure programs remain current and relevant to the marketplace needs.

Program Advisory Committee members include: employers, graduates, business and industry leaders, and representatives from professional and accrediting bodies and agencies.

Each program advisory committee elects a chair who serves for a two-year term (renewable once) as a facilitator and leader at committee meetings. The chair may also represent the advisory committee at College functions such as convocation and award ceremonies.

Humber’s Program Advisory Committees are vital to educational planning at Humber. They advise on a broad range of topics such as:

  • Co-operative experiences and field placement
  • Employment prospects 
  • Student awards
  • Public relations
  • Curriculum
  • Technology
  • Program review

Committee members attend and participate in meetings, and may become involved in subcommittee activities and projects. Committee members participate in agenda setting and evaluation of meetings.
