Success Stories

Program Advisory Committees

Conestoga College values our relationship with business and industry. Program Advisory Committees (PACs) meet about three times per year to discuss industry needs and give input about college programs. Members of these groups include employers, school board representatives, government officials and industry experts. This process assists college staff and faculty in understanding industry needs to better train a qualified and skilled workforce.

Conestoga is truly grateful for the time Program Advisory Committee members invest in our program development. Their continued support is key in enabling Conestoga to stay current with the ongoing changes in the various industries. Thank you!

Program Advisory Committee members have expressed an interest in supporting Conestoga's student awards program. Last year, through the generosity of donors, Conestoga was able to distribute more than 700 awards. For many of our students, these awards are the key in helping them achieve their educational and career goals.

Your generous support not only relieves the stress of financial burden, but provides Conestoga students with the well-deserved acknowledgment of their efforts.
