PANM Community Advisory Board
The PANM Community Advisory Board, established in the Spring 2012, is charged with the following mission:
The board exists to accentuate the linkage between the PANM program at UTC and the community that it serves. The board serves to provide strategic leadership to the program as well as advise the program in the specific areas of curriculum, internships, community partnerships, financial resources, program quality, alumni and alumnae engagement and the needs of potential employers.
The board meets once in the Spring and once in the Fall semester to engage in deliberate strategic thinking and monitor emergent issues, assessing the program in each of the above areas in order to fulfill the mission of the program by meeting the needs of our students, public-serving organizations, and the community at large. Board membership draws on noted practitioners, distinguished alumni and alumnae, and emeritus faculty in order to ensure the committee effectively spans the boundaries between program and community.
Please direct all inquires about the committee to Dr. Irina Khmelko, Chairperson of the Committee at: Irina-Khmelko@UTC.edu.
