The BAC Professional Development Program
The BAC Professional Development Program is designed to provide national-caliber professional development training to IU professional academic advisors at no cost to the advisors. The Program will provide monthly on-campus professional development during the lunch hour. Each advisor who attends FIVE or more program events will receive a certificate of completion and acknowledgement letter sent to the advisor's supervisor. The requirements for the 2012-2013 BAC Professional Development Certificate have recently been amended. Click here for the approved guidelines.
It is not too late to give us your feedback on this year’s Spring Conference that occurred on Monday February 25th, 2013. Please click here to answer a short survey and provide your feedback to the BAC Professional Development Committee and BAC Steering Committee. Thank you in advance for your time.

Culture of Care Events and Initiatives
Culture of Care is a campus wide, student-led and staff-supported initiative focused on creating a campus culture in which members of the Indiana University Bloomington community demonstrate “care” for one another. Through bystander intervention, the Culture of Care initiative empowers students to support their peers. The Culture of Care initiative promotes helping one another, behavioral change, and raising awareness about four core areas: Sexual Well-Being, Mental Health, Alcohol & Drug Awareness, and Respect.
Here's a one - page flyer with more information about the Culture of Care initiative. Please feel free to post this flyer to help get the word out to students about the Culture of Care initiative, upcoming events and how they can get involved.
