Academic professionals on each University of Illinois campus (Chicago, Springfield, Urbana-Champaign) elect colleagues to represent them on their own campus advisory committees. The representatives of UPPAC are usually nominated from members of these professional advisory committees, such as APAC, based on individual bylaws. Individuals serve one year terms but can repeat terms.
The State Universities Retirement System Member Advisory Committee (SURSMAC) is formed with representation from all community colleges and universities to advise the SURS Board of Trustees on retirement system matters. The State Universities Annuitants Association (SUAA) also holds a seat as a voting member.
