Marc McCann's career has been varied, including stints as a social studies teacher at a private boarding school, the Program Director of a non-profit providing prevention, early intervention, and community-based programming for at risk children and youth, and the Executive Director of an organization providing services to the international communities of Penn State and State College.

- Favorite Penn State Memory: Watching PSU in their first Big Ten Basketball game, in Rec Hall, against Indiana – with free tickets (tickets were free for Grad students back then!)
- Favorite hobby/activity: Spending time with wife and kids (3 boys), especially if it involves traveling
- Reason for joining APG: Initially asked to serve as Faculty Liaison, but once involved, I’ve really enjoyed getting to know and work with Alumni.
