2016 AACRAO Strategic Enrollment Management Conference

AACRAO's Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) Conference is recognized as the foremost provider of best practices, training, research, and guidelines for enrollment management practitioners looking to maximize student success, improve operational efficiency, and enhance the financial well-being of their institution.

Since the inception of AACRAO’s first Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) Conference over 25 years ago, the concept of enrollment management has evolved from simply ramping up recruitment and marketing, to coordinating campus-wide efforts to ensure student success, from initial contact until graduation.

The SEM Conference brings together a comprehensive lineup of experts, researchers, and practitioners—who showcase both the core concepts that are the foundation of SEM, as well as new and best practices.
