President’s Athletics Advisory Council

President’s Athletics Advisory Council

The President’s Athletics Advisory Council (PAAC) is responsible for advising the president and dean of students on major decisions impacting Athletics. The PAAC advises the president on all matters relating to intercollegiate athletics to strengthen programs and insure the alignment of intercollegiate athletics with the MCLA mission and goals.

The PAAC supports the development and maintenance of a competitive intercollegiate athletic program which reflects favorably upon MCLA and supports and advises on activities related to the welfare and academic achievement of student athletes. The council does not set or execute policy, but serves to provide counsel concerning intercollegiate athletics to help foster and maintain program strength, academic integrity of the College and the academic and social development of student athletes with attention to equity, student welfare, development and sportsmanship, facility planning, academic standards and integrity, and, campus and community relations. The PAAC meets regularly and reports annually to the College President. The Council is led by co-chairpersons one of whom is the Faculty Athletic Representative (FAR) and the other is appointed by the College President.
