Apply Now

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.

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.

The council meets for lunch once a month throughout the entire academic year. This fall, meetings will be on select Fridays from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. The first full council meeting will be Friday, October 13, 2017. 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.

To apply for the 2017-2018 Bass Connections Student Advisory Council, please complete and submit this application by 5:00 p.m. on September 22, 2017.

All questions may be directed to the Student Advisory Council co-chairs at bengisu.pay@duke.edu or zachary.smothers@duke.edu.
