Tri-C Annual Advisory Committees Appreciation Breakfast & Community Champions Awards
Annual Advisory Committees Appreciation Breakfast
Since 1993, Tri-C hosts an annual event to honor and celebrate the contributions of Tri-C’s Program Advisory Committees. Typically, community and staff members with professional expertise are invited to sit on the Committees, providing input to development of Tri-C Programs and ensuring students are well-positioned for success in their chosen fields. The Committees are nominated for an annual award by Tri-C Faculty and Staff who are working directly with them.
