The PAC meets once a month to go through system-wide policy directions, administrative and academic operation coordination, and special concerns with autonomous units. The PAC has also acted as a venue for coordinated and unified deliberations about the growth and development of the university, as well as for the dissemination of information on academic and administrative policies adopted by the BOR. Furthermore, it has acted as a coordinating body for different university initiatives and projects, a sounding board for policy proposals prior to submission to the BOR, and a feedback mechanism for the university’s numerous academic and administrative concerns.
