Our mission

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.

How we contribute

APSAC operates with a chair and a vice chair; much of its actual work is completed through subcommittees. The entire group meets monthly.

Our core values

  • Act with Integrity
  • Advocate for the A/P Staff
  • Communicate effectively
  • Collaborate creatively and inclusively

How we feel

APSAC takes pride in its accomplishments on behalf of administrative and professional staff at Purdue. Our intention is to contribute to the mission of the University as a whole by building relationships with the Administration and with colleagues. APSAC members welcome the opportunity to work together to make Purdue even better.
