INA, Ill. (May 29, 2019) - Dozens of local professionals met with Rend Lake College faculty, staff and administrators last month at their annual Advisory Council meetings. The curriculum and program outcomes in 24 different Career and Technical Education disciplines at the college were reviewed. The Advisory Members help the college by assessing and counseling each program with what benefits RLC students and graduates.
“It can’t be overstated how important these Advisory Councils are to RLC’s mission," said RLC President Terry Wilkerson. "We place high value on our close partnerships with these employers. Our goals — jobs for graduates and skilled workers for employers.”
