Program Advisory Committee

One of the cornerstones of the educational programs of Vancouver Community College (VCC) is a strong connection to the employment and community sector each program serves. Program Advisory Committees (PACs) provide that connection.

PACs are constituted to provide strategic advice and assistance to a VCC program or group of programs. They provide guidance on overall trends that may affect the curriculum and employability of VCC graduates. This could include an understanding of the skills and abilities employers and community are likely to require in the future, the potential effects of technological change, changes to methodologies used by employers, and advocacy on issues affecting the College and its mandate, etc.

Each PAC will submit an annual report to the Vice President, Academic & Research, which summarizes the activities and recommendations of the PAC. The Vice President will prepare a summary report for the President, the Board of Governors and Education Council.
