MaPSAC Management and Professional Staff Advisory Committee

About MaPSAC

Our History

MaPSAC was established in 1988 to build a formal communication link between management and professional (M/P) staff and the central administration.

MaPSAC is composed of members who are representative of M/P staff from all segments of the campus community, including the regional campuses. See Purdue's Governance Policy for more information.  In April 2020, the Management and Professional Staff Advisory Committee (MaPSAC), changed its name from Administrative and Professional Staff Advisory Committee (APSAC) because of changes in position classifications.

Our Mission

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

How We Contribute

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

Our Core Values

  • Act with Integrity
  • Advise university senior leadership
  • Communicate effectively
  • Collaborate creatively and inclusively

How We Feel

MaPSAC takes pride in its accomplishments on behalf of management 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 our colleagues. MaPSAC members welcome the opportunity to work together to make Purdue even better. MaPSAC Strategic Plan
