Potential Advising Communities

Potential Advising Communities (PAC's) have moved through the Division's Process to Become An Advising Community.  It can take more than a year for the PAC to gather evidence and garner support to provide the justification of member need for a community not yet represented within the Advising Communities Division. 

After sufficient evidence and support gathering, PAC's are provided the opportunity to summarize their concept in a final video including their purpose and rationale for becoming an Advising Community. The Division's leaders will review all the PAC's info and then participate in an online vote to determine if they will become Advising Communities. Once approved at the Division level, final approval of all new Advising Communities comes from the NACADA Council and Board of Directors. 

PAC's currently moving through the Division's Process to Become An Advising Community are listed below along with their status according to the steps outlined in the timeline.
