Advisory Council

Role of the Kodiak College Advisory Council

Serve as advocates for the College within the community

As active members of the communities we serve, you will find yourselves in situations where you can respond to comments or questions about the college and the services we provide and promote our offerings to the public. You may also become aware of needs within the community for workshops, courses, programs, or specific training that we do not currently provide. You can either bring that information to the Director or direct the individual, business, or organization to the appropriate person at the college. In all cases, you can help to increase the College’s visibility and viability.

Serve as advocates for the College & University with state and local government

We are heavily dependent on state funding, and anticipate needing increases in Borough and State funding to support campus initiatives. Any opportunity you have to influence legislators, assembly and/or council members on behalf of the College and the University will encourage them to support our budget requests.

Function as a review board and sounding board

You will have an opportunity to review new programs and major changes or deletions to existing programs in the context of community needs and appropriateness of content relative to skills needed by business and industry. You will also serve as a sounding board for the administration on issues of policy and procedure (e.g., tuition increases, facilities planning) affecting students, employees, and relations with other branches of the University.

Solicit new members for the Council as terms expire

The Council is set up to have rotating terms so that the interests of the many and diverse groups in our community can be represented. You will be asked to solicit nominations and/or applications for membership on the Council as terms expire and to select a list of nominees to send forward for the Chancellor’s approval.
