Each Career-Technical Education (CTE) program at Lane Community College has an active Advisory Committee. The Culinary and Baking Program Advisory Committee has 10-15 members and primarily includes local industry professionals, alumni, and our Faculty and Staff. There are two meetings during the academic year.
The Committee is the program's connection to the industry in order to better understand current needs and trends, either nationally or locally. The Committee's industry professionals offer the program: unique guidance to the development of our curriculum; communications and public relations for our program; job opportunities; and general support of our program's goals and events.
Advisory Committee members may also participate in offering cooperative education experiences through their businesses where applicable. The Advisory Committee is always invited to our Program's events throughout the year such as the Welcome Lunch, Alumni Connections events, and the Graduation celebration party.
We encourage students to get to know an Advisory Committee member at one of our events or attend a meeting during their enrollment in the program!
Note: If you are an industry professional that would like to contribute to the Advisory Committee, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
