Bass Connections Student Advisory Council 2017-2018 MEMBER APPLICATION
Who are we?
The Bass Connections Student Advisory Council (BCSAC) is an advisory group that seeks to include representatives from all student levels, programs, and Bass Connections themes. Prior participation in Bass Connections is NOT a requirement of membership, and first-years and new graduate students are encouraged to apply. Prospective members should demonstrate interest in interdisciplinary inquiry, team-based learning, and developing collaborative solutions to real world problems with teams from diverse backgrounds. To see who was on the council last year, check out: For more information about Bass Connections, please visit:
What do we do?
The BCSAC serves as a sounding board for student ideas, questions, and suggestions relating to Bass Connections and interdisciplinary education at Duke. Through this leadership opportunity, council members have the chance to build relationships with students, faculty members, and administrators to gain an inside perspective on this exciting program and make a lasting impact on its development and direction. Past councils have been integral to the program’s evolution and success and have worked on a range of issues such as educational programming, student and disciplinary diversity, strategic marketing and recruitment, and special event planning and management.
When do we meet?
The council meets for lunch once a month throughout the entire academic year. This fall, we will meet on select Fridays from 12:00 to 1:00PM. (Dates and times for the spring semester will be determined at a later date.) Council members who accept team leader roles will also be required to meet bi-weekly for approximately half an hour.

Our first full council meeting will be FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13th, 2017.

This is a serious commitment, and students who accept a council seat will be expected to attend all scheduled meetings. In addition to attending lunches, council members will also serve as Bass Connections ambassadors by participating in select special events, such as student orientations, the Bass Connections Open House, Blue Devil Days, and the end-of-the-year Bass Connections Showcase. If you are unable to make meeting times in the fall but would like to serve as an ambassador for campus events, please contact Bengisu Pay at
