Multicultural Advancement Alumni Council Recognized as an Affiliate Program Group

The Multicultural Advancement Alumni Council is now a formal Affiliate Program Group of the College of Education.

By Joe Savrock (September 2007)


UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The Multicultural Advancement Alumni Council (MAAC) is now a formal Affiliate Program Group (APG) of the College of Education. The College’s Alumni Society Board designated MAAC as the College’s sixth APG at their June 23 meeting.

An APG is a university-recognized group of alumni from a particular program, club, or population at Penn State. The group focuses on a specific academic program or population of alumni rather than on the broader College. Working closely with their affiliated academic unit, participating alumni and friends can funnel their common interests directly into the activities of their APG.

The other five chartered APGs in the College are:

•    American Indian Leadership Program
•    Higher Education Program Alumni Council
•    Educational Leadership Program Alumni Council
•    Professional Development School Alumni Council
•    Workforce Education & Development Program Alumni Council

For more information about the MAAC Affiliate Program Group, contact  Eugenio Longoria Sáenz, doctoral candidate in Adult Education.
