Millennium Project: Enhancing the Climate for Excellence at the University

MPAC Members

Following release of the MPAC Five Year Report, the Millennium Project Action Committee was decommissioned in Spring 2007. Final recommendations suggested further followup and oversight be handled by the Diversity Coalition, Staff Advisory Council and Appointed Professionals Advisory Council.

Mission Statement

To address the issues and concerns of year-to-year appointed professionals and classified staff and to oversee the implementation of the recommendations contained in the Millennium Project Phase II Report.

Who We Are

The Millennium Project Action Committee (MPAC) is a diverse group of classified staff and appointed professionals whose members come from many academic and administrative units, including an off campus representative and designated representatives from UA Staff Advisory Council (SAC) and Appointed Professionals Advisory Council (APAC). Members were selected based on their continued dedication to promoting a respectful, diverse environment for all members of the campus community. The original committee members were appointed by President Likins in March 2003.

Millennium Project Background

The Millennium Project Phase II assessed the quality of worklife for year-to-year appointed professionals and classified staff at the University of Arizona. The Phase II report identified issues of greatest concern to these employee groups and included recommendations to address problem areas. Recommendations support one overarching goal: To build a University community that honors the contributions of all its members in meeting the needs of a student centered research institution. A key action item requested was the appointment of a University committee (MPAC) to oversee the implementation of these recommendations.

The complete Millennium Project Phase II Report is available online.
