Hudson Valley Community College has advisory committees for each of its academic programs, and each year, the college hosts a reception to recognize committee members for their service.
Advisory committee members lend real-world perspective to the college’s academic leadership and provide professional guidance in the areas of curriculum development and planning. The work of advisory committees ensures that the college’s programs are up-to-date and its graduates well-prepared for the workforce or the next step in their academic careers.
