The museum staff is charged with carrying out the programmatic directives of the MAC.
Established in January 2009, the MAC is composed of nine voting members. The Museum Director serves in an ex-officio, non-voting capacity. The MAC has a diverse composition of CWU faculty and students as well as community and regional stakeholders.
