Professional Advisory Councils
Professional Advisory Councils offer Sheridan a unique strength in postsecondary education. Successful Professional Advisory Councils provide strategic advice and input in the program review process and help the College respond to changing academic, business and industry requirements. Professional Advisory Councils help ensure that our programs stay relevant to the needs within the community and anticipate future trends. Their perspective assists us to ensure that new and existing programs are relevant and curricula are up to date so that graduates will possess the skills and competencies required by employers in the current and future labour markets.
