President's Advisory Council

Advisory Council

Join us as we welcome the President's Advisory Council. The council was established with the mission to communicate and provide broad policy, workforce and economic trend recommendations as it relates to the specific areas of focus for the College.  The advisors were chosen based upon their unique history and involvement in the community.

The PAC's overriding purpose is:

  • To review and provide input on the strategic plan and advance the mission of the college. 
  • Promote and create awareness on the value of Phoenix College, its programs and community programs.
  • To communicate the latest trends in the workforce and economic trends for the future.
