Minority Academic Advancement Committee (MAAC)

The Minority Academic Advancement Committee (MAAC) (formerly the Minority Faculty and Resident Recruitment and Retention Committee) makes recommendations to recruit and retain minority faculty and staff.  The MAAC continues to focus on faculty and resident recruitment but have also begun to support efforts to recruit and retain postdoctoral fellows and students in all three graduate schools.  In addition, the committee has made recommendations to the University leadership to adopt, for all departments, best practice guidelines for recruitment and retention.  The MAAC has also made themselves available to departments to support their recruitment and retention efforts.
