APSAC serves as a two-way conduit between A/P staff and the administration. As such, APSAC serves two distinct constituencies, each with the need to hear the other and to be heard by the other. In its role as a communication facilitator, APSAC offers A/P staff a mechanism to voice their interests and concerns as they relate to campus affairs.
