Advisory Council

The President's Advisory Council (PAC) consists of an At-Large Faculty member selected by the President (Chair), the President's Senior Advisor, the Immediate-Past Faculty Senate Chair, the Administrative Faculty Committee Chair, the Classified Staff Council Chair, the GPSA President, the CSUN President, and representatives from select campus constituencies.

With representation of campus leaders from all sectors of UNLV, the PAC invites the campus community to submit issues of importance. These issues will be communicated to the President. Find out where to turn when personally aggrieved, subjected to adverse personnel actions or as a witness to inappropriate or prohibited conduct.
