Congratulations to the 35 IUB advisors
who completed
the Professional Development Program for 2013-2014

The BAAC 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 BAC Professional Development Certificate have recently been amended. Click here for the approved guidelines.
