President's Community Advisory Council

President's Community Advisory Council

The purpose of the President's Community Advisory Council is to provide an active forum for community members to become personally involved and connected with the college. Through bi-annual meetings, college leadership works with West Valley community members to gain insight and counsel regarding trends, educational opportunities, strategic directions, and collaborative program efforts. In addition, by publishing an annual impact report, the College communicates to members the experiences of our students, our institutional directions and priorities, and progress.
