The Louisiana Delta Community College Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt Louisiana corporation which is governed by a group of community leaders who represent the positive leadership of the community. These members seek to obtain gifts and grants needed beyond the scope of tax-based funding, and to manage and expend these items for the development of Louisiana Delta Community College. The Foundation’s board members represent small to large businesses in Northeast Louisiana. Some of these members have personally experienced the benefits of a community college and share in the vision of improvement in education in the community. The Louisiana Delta Community College Foundation exists to build leadership, scholarship, and partnerships by increasing donor support, rewarding excellence, and elevating the stature and importance of the College locally, regionally, and nationally.
Delta utilizes advisory committees to ensure that the College is meeting the needs of the community. The Chancellor’s Cabinet and College Council advises the Chancellor on developing long- and short-range plans for the College and acts as liaison between the College and the community. Advisory committees may consist of professional and community representatives, as well as representatives from Delta faculty, administrators, students and graduates. Advisory Committee meetings allow for discussions relative to programmatic curriculum modifications or revisions based on student academic and clinical performance, graduate credentialing examination results, employer feedback on graduate entry-level performance and identified needs of the job market.
Advisory Committee recommendations that require administrative action to be implemented are presented to the appropriate Dean, Vice Chancellor and/or other College standing committees for review, approval and possible implementation. The appropriate administrator, program director, lead faculty, or coordinator maintains minutes of advisory committee meetings to be distributed to committee members.
