Programming Activities Council

The Programming Activities Council is a student-run organization which provides high-quality entertainment to enrich the lives of students outside the classroom. This organization collaborates with other Colorado Mesa University organizations in assisting and enhancing programs. PAC provides educational opportunities for students to gain experience in advertising and implementing programs for the Colorado Mesa University community.

PAC members plan many of the fun campus events you enjoy!

Interested in Volunteering for PAC?

PAC puts on several high-quality events each month. These events are a success because of the help the PAC staff receives from many volunteers! Volunteers can help with everything from choosing performers to bring to campus to helping set up the day of events.

Five students serve as staff members for the Programming Activities Council and performing duties such as:

  • planning events
  • marketing events
  • setting up and tearing down events
  • attending weekly meetings
  • holding office hours

Students typically volunteer with PAC for a year before applying to serve as a staff member. Volunteers are able to tailor there time committed to PAC based on the time they have available.

Serving on the Programming Activities Council is an excellent way of developing skills in marketing, budgeting, event planning, organization, and teamwork. This experience is invaluable when interviewing for jobs after graduation!

If you are interested in volunteering, please call the PAC office at 970.248.1750.
