2014-15 BAAC Professional Development Certificate Program

Congratulations to all of the advisors who completed the 2014-15 BAAC Professional Development Certificate Program.

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