The mission of the BDIC Student Advisory Board is to
• Create a platform for developing community among BDIC students.
• Provide a collective voice for students to influence the direction of BDIC.
• Bridge the gap between students, faculty and alumni.
In addition to advising BDIC faculty and staff on a wide variety of topics, the primary function of SAB has been to hold events (some large, some small) that bring BDIC majors together for a combination of social and practical purposes. Since 2010 the SAB has sponsored an annual Alumni Networking Night that brings together current BDIC majors with alumni in their fields. In 2011, the SAB inititated a Faculty Sponsors Award Night which brings BDIC majors and their faculty sponsors together for an evening of conversation and celebration.
SAB events are funded through donations from BDIC alumni and friends. Be on the lookout for organizational notices about the SAB early in the Fall 2016 semester.
