Advisory Committees

Gateway Technical College is proud of its nearly 400 industry experts who have agreed to serve Gateway Technical College with membership on the educational program advisory committees. Advisory committees provide Gateway administration and faculty with valuable advice on current labor needs, future trends and appropriateness of the outcomes of our educational programs and services.

Advisory committees are made up of employers and employees working in the field for which learners are being prepared. All state-approved occupational programs at Gateway Technical College are required by Wisconsin Technical College System policy and administrative rule to form an advisory committee.

Members of an advisory committee are selected to serve because they have proven successful in their chosen occupation. Advisory committee members lend their expertise, knowledge, and experience to Gateway Technical College academic programs to ensure the proper preparation of students in the occupational field of their choice. Gateway currently has approximately 400 advisory committee members representing over 200 organizations.

Are you interested in being an advisory committee member? Advisory committee members commit to a minimum of four meetings over a two-year term. Equal representation of both employers and employees is considered in the appointment process, as well as racial and gender diversity, and geographic location. You can find more information about member expectations on page 7 of the Advisory Committee Handbook.
