At the University of Texas, McGann served as acting chairman of the Department of History and as chairman of the department's Graduate Studies Committee. He was chairman of the Board of Faculty Advisors of the University of Texas Press, and served as chairman of the Publications Committee of the Institute of Latin American Studies.
