What We Do:

The Academic Affairs Committee is dedicated to any and all things related to your academic career here at Mac! We are here to represent you in areas relating to policy, practices, and proposals of an academic nature. We also address areas relating to admissions and financial aid, academic buildings and facilities, the academic advising system, and tenure/personnel policies of the faculty.
