In spring 2011, with the support of Dr. Mike Doncheski (Director of Academic Affairs/DAA), Tim Radio (Division of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) Programs Coordinator) developed an academic advising council here at Penn State Mont Altothe “MAAC”: Mont Alto Advising Council. The University as a whole has the University Advising Council (UAC), and campuses (through the DAAs and the DUS Coordinators) have been encouraged to create their own council to address “local” topics. It is our hope that the MAAC will grow to become, among other things, a group:


that values quality academic advising and works to foster a campus climate/culture that does the same

that the campus looks to for guidance on addressing academic advising-related issues
