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.
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.

Project Phase II Report is available online.
