New and updated news for advisors at IUPUI and IUPUC

December 2015 President's Welcome

We are so happy you have found your way to our virtual community for JACADA, the professional advising organization for IUPUI and IUPUC! JACADA was and continues to be the dream of those who are passionate about the profession of advising and student success. We are only as good as the ideas created and manifested by our members. Luckily, we have an amazing group of people with incredible vision and ideas. I have served in JACADA since its start, and I can say with authority that in its short 6 year history it has already exceeded many of the dreams we held at the beginning.

. . . with advisors and student services professionals. Our committees provide an opportunity for advisors to get involved and promote a professional community.

. . . with administrators. We have a seat on the Campus Advising Council, Directors of Advising, and the AdRx Technical Committee. 

If you are an IUPUI or IUPUC advisor or someone who cares about advising, please join us by creating a profile. We have no membership fees—just an expectation that you get involved and help make us better! 



Amy Maidi, President of JACADA

President's Welcome

It was exciting this year to announce that JACADA was moving away from being a dues paying organization, to allowing free membership thanks to the generous support from the Division of Undergraduate Education. This year, the JACADA leadership considered the priorities for the organization and chose three areas of focus: Advocacy, Communication, and Engagement. As the various committees and programs are planned, these three ideas are at the forefront of all decision making.

We welcome new ideas, new energy, and new people at any JACADA sponsored activity or meeting. We hope to see you soon!

Advisors rock,

Kyle McCool – JACADA President
