Volunteers The work of collaborative visioning engages dedicated volunteers in relevant, meaningful work. INSTITUTIONAL ADVANCEMENT ] VOLUNTEERS e concept of working together toward a common goal is deeply ingrained in the culture of the BAC. e founders understood that, by combining their talents and skills, they would have a far greater impact on the young people under their tutelage and expand their ability to reach more students. e BAC has always maintained close ties to the professional design community. ese ties are evident in the BAC's faculty of practicing professionals, and in the commitment to the concurrent academic and practice based curricula as the cornerstone of a design education. Over the past decade the BAC's active commitment to its' vision has led to remarkable growth and diversi cation. Today the BAC has more than full-time students enrolled in degree programs, along with hundreds of part-time and online students from across the country and around the globe. In order to ful ll its mission, the BAC needs the help of its loyal supporters more than ever before. e College currently has hundred of volunteers representing the elds of design, education, construction, nance, public service, real estate development, engineering and a variety of other industries. We engage these dedicated individuals in relevant, meaningful work that supports the BAC's mission and furthers the achievements of our students, while providing a ful lling volunteer experience. ere are many opportunities to ser ve, through direct involvement with the students, taking a role in governance, assisting with institutional advancement, or helping to create a vision for the future. Student involvement for practitioners may range from teaching a course to reviewing portfolios, from mentoring a student to hiring a BAC graduate. Opportunities at the governance level include serving on commit- tees or task forces that deal with all of the issues important to the BAC. Institutional Advancement volunteers help to secure the nancial support that will build a solid foundation for generations of students to come. e work of collaborative visioning engages volunteers on design advisory councils, providing direction and advice as our programs continue to grow and mature. Volunteer duties create lasting partnerships, connecting our students, faculty and programs with the broader design commu- nity, doing real work in real time. It is the commitment and full engagement of our volunteers that has brought the BAC to where it is today, and these volunteers will help to lead the way into a promising future as the BAC continues its remarkable journey of transformation.
