The programs at Kishwaukee College that are designed to prepare students to directly enter the workforce after completion of a degree or certificate are guided by Advisory Committees. Advisory Committees are composed of local and regional professionals in a program’s field and Kishwaukee College instructors. The newest volunteers to serve on these important committees assumed their roles during the Fall semester.
Sara Pohl, Dean of Career Technologies Division at Kishwaukee College, said, “We are extremely grateful to the men and women who volunteer their time and expertise to our Advisory Committees each year. We thank our out-going Advisory Committee members and welcome our newest members.”
