Our goal at Owens Community College is to provide our students with the most up-to-date educational experience possible. To assist the college with this goal, each academic department works with an advisory board comprised of professionals within the field who keep the college informed about new technologies and developments in the profession or course of study. The academic department responsible for the program incorporates this information, along with their analysis from the assessment process into their decision making and curriculum revision process. When the curriculum is revised it is sent to a college-wide curriculum committee who reviews the request to assure adherence to Ohio Board of Regents and accreditation standards. The result should be a high quality curriculum that best prepared Owens students for the profession or course of study of their choosing.
