SEM Teams Experience
Collaboration is integral to implementing successful SEM strategies at any institution. Gather your colleagues and bring key SEM concepts back to share on your campus.
About the SEM Teams Experience
The SEM Teams Experience is a collaborative
initiative developed by AACRAO to support institutions in improving their strategic enrollment management efforts. The aim is to facilitate institutional improvement by fostering collaboration, developing a holistic understanding of enrollment dynamics,
identifying barriers and opportunities, and designing strategies to achieve enrollment goals.
How the SEM Teams Experience Works
Institutions that have at least four attendees for the SEM Conference will be offered
the opportunity to develop a team with a SEM Coach. AACRAO and your SEM Coach will work with you to determine your goals for attendance at SEM including opportunities to develop specific skills, solve problems, develop strategies, or implement plans.
The SEM Coach will work with your team in advance of the conference and meet with your team throughout the conference to facilitate discussions, offer advice, and guide you through the SEM Teams Experience.
SEM Coaches are seasoned professionals
within the enrollment management field from a diverse set of institutions. In addition, teams can ask to be connected with a coach from the AACRAO Consulting team to explore an ongoing partnership.
Time and space are set aside on the schedule
for the SEM conference for teams to meet including opportunities for all team participants to meet and network.
TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE SEM TEAMS EXPERIENCE, WE REQUIRE A MINIMUM OF FOUR PARTICIPANTS FROM EACH INSTITUTION. ALL TEAM MEMBERS MUST BE REGISTERED BY FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2023.
