NWTC Advisory Committees


Thank you to all of our stakeholders who attended the NWTC Advisory Committee meetings on our Alva and Fairview campuses! Each career major program has an industry specific advisory committee consisting of local employers and business owners, students, parents, and public school educators who offer input on curriculum, equipment, facilities, etc. The BIS staff also utilizes advisory committees to gather data and suggestions on area training needs and customer satisfaction. Data from these advisory committees provide immediate and actionable information that assists NWTC with an innovative planning process. Listening to key stakeholder groups and learning from their input allows NWTC to determine specific training and educational needs. We appreciate your time and energy to help NWTC be its best!
