The mission of the PAC-12 Academic Leadership Coalition is to improve the effectiveness and responsiveness of each member school’s shared governance organization; and where commonalities occur, to facilitate academic and research cooperation that is jointly beneficial to participating institutions.

The PAC-12 ALC is comprised of all universities within the PAC-12 Athletic conference. Voting rights are only conferred upon those institutions that are in good standing, those institutions actively participating in meetings and which have paid their yearly dues. Membership in the organization does not imply participation in any or all of the possible collaborations, nor does it require attendance at annual conferences.
