Anti-Racism Committee

The Anti-Racism Committee (ARC) exists out of necessity and will function as both a barometer and a promoter of equity within the MACAC organization. The committee will question and challenge existing systems of oppression and exclusion through work with the organization's annual strategic plan and approach to member recruitment and engagement (among other things). ARC members will engage deeply with anti-racist ideas and materials while simultaneously working to uplift, equip, and empower those who have been historically marginalized (and thus underrepresented) in Admissions committee and leadership positions.
