These units include but are not limited to: the President, the Provost, the University Senate, the Deans’ Council, and the Office of the CIO.

A majority of the membership of ACPAC consists of faculty members. ACPAC membership shall include the following:
The officers of ACPAC shall be the Academic Co-chair and the Administrative Co-chair.
The Academic Co-chair shall be a faculty representative to ACPAC and shall be elected and installed at the end of the final meeting of the academic year. The term of office is two years with re-election possible, but for no more than two consecutive terms.
The ACPAC Administrative Co-chair shall be an Assistant Dean of Technology of a College, nominated by the Chief Information Officer and ratified by a majority vote of ACPAC members. The Administrative Co-chair shall serve for a term of two years, and this term can be repeated if he/she is nominated and ratified as above.

Meetings are normally held once per month during the academic year. The co-chairs may call additional meetings as needed.

Most action teams are created to address a specific issue, and reports from the current action teams become standing agenda items. Action teams are created and disbanded by a majority vote of members present.
