The Teacher Advisory Committee of local educators meets biannually and reports to the state of Iowa. It enhances the Grinnell College Education Program's communication and cooperation with area schools to provide an excellent pre-service teaching education for Grinnell students, advises faculty on student teaching evaluations, and makes suggestions about enhancing Grinnell’s curriculum. Members serve a two-year term; membership terms are staggered to provide some continuity of membership.

Similarly, this may be something you opt to include in an advising syllabus, or on your professional webpage.
