Alamo Colleges District Pathways Advisory Committee
|The five colleges of the Alamo Colleges District have adopted a pathways model called the AlamoINSTITUTES, comprised of six career institutes designed to guide students to academic choices that lead to successful employment and life-long careers. Each institute represents a system of educational pathways toward specialized careers. Students can choose a general field of study or a specific job, and the institute will guide them, step by step, to arrive at the future they want. Each course taken in the chosen institute builds on another. This proven approach saves students’ time and money.||
The Alamo Colleges District recognizes the critical impact that advisory committees serve in preparing students for today’s workforce. Advisory committees serve to inform program administrators and faculty, ensuring our programs maintain the level of quality needed by both students and employers. Through their members, they provide a cross-section of expertise and experience to effectively influence the direction and momentum of educational pathways at the Alamo Colleges. The Alamo Colleges value the expert advice and contributions that committee members make regarding curriculum, equipment/technology, internships/apprenticeships and ultimately, job opportunities.
The Alamo Colleges District is committed to integrating employer feedback, career information and marketable skills across curricula, aligning academic programs and pre-majors with career paths and informing Institutes with employer recommendations for successful pathways to students’ career readiness.
