About Our Industry Advisory Council

Our Industry Advisory Council (IAC) was re-established in March 2012 to help the program achieve accreditation and become nationally recognized; provide feedback on curriculum, facilities, and in meeting industry needs; assisting in resource development and job placement; and serve as program advocates. It meets twice a year.

The IAC is split into two councils—executive and general—and five subcommittees—curriculum, job placement, outreach, development, and ASSE. Members serve for four-year terms and the chair serves a two-year term. Alumnus Brian Clarke, ‘87, who assisted with the council’s re-establishment, is the current IAC chair.
