The PACS is charged with providing a forum for staff representation across the Division of Academic
Affairs to provide input into the management and leadership of the division. The PACS advises the
Provost on issues related to the welfare of staff within the division and provides perspective on matters
of significant staff concern. The PACS is dedicated to serving and promoting communication between
the administration and all staff within the division, and to ensure that the principles of shared
governance are embraced throughout the division. The PACS will meet two times per semester during
the academic year. The term of service will be August to May, with the nomination and election process
occurring each July.
