The advisory committee is responsible for ongoing program development and oversight. Members of the Advisory Committee will frequently be instructors in the program’s courses, and they will serve as advisors for students enrolled in the program. The Director and the advisory committee will also be responsible for identifying and approving courses and electives for the program.
