The Management and Professional Staff Advisory Committee(MaPSAC) serves as a two-way conduit between administrative and professional staff and the senior administration. As such, MaPSAC serves two distinct areas, each with the need to hear the other and to be heard by the other.

In its role as a communications facilitator, MaPSAC offers administrative and professional staff a mechanism to voice their interests and concerns as they relate to campus affairs.

To ensure staff are heard, informed and engaged, MaPSAC reviews, interprets and recommends changes to policies and procedures impacting administrative and professional staff to the university administration.

MaPSAC also sponsors professional development and engagement activities and educates administrative and professional staff regarding issues affecting employment.
