Advisory Board

Full-time Office Technology Information (OFTI) faculty members at College of DuPage meet periodically with an advisory board made up of business professionals from businesses located within the college's district. Members of the OFTI Program Advisory Board provide valuable input and feedback regarding the skills necessary for success in the office support field. They also assist in the ongoing evaluation of College of DuPage's OFTI program courses, certificates and degree programs. This evaluation helps to maintain the quality and professional relevance of the OFTI program.
