Advisory Council

The BCA Study Abroad Advisory Council was launched in 2015 to support the mission and goals of the organization. Advisory Council members are a select group of individuals from BCA sending institutions and others who provide guidance, make recommendations and share expertise to support BCA’s organizational initiatives and goals in program development. We value the time and contribution of each Advisory Council member who voluntarily serves a two-year term.
