Fall Advisory Board Meeting
On Monday evening, November 5th, STI Director Patricia Illsley hosted and led the first advisory meeting for the 2018/2019 academic year. Seven programs were represented with employers, faculty, alumni, and current students. This inclusive format provided attendees with information on all STI programs. Ms. Illsley’s power point presentation focused on updates and changes for each area as well as the Accreditation review from COE’s (Council on Education) recent visit.
The Adult Culinary Arts students, and staff, prepared a delicious buffet and sweet table which was enjoyed by all. After dinner each Program Director facilitated their own meeting to discuss specific agenda items. Topics included placement, certifications, employment trends, curriculum and methods of instruction, student input, supplies, equipment, and budgetary needs.
