2020 SEM-EP Graduate

Cindy Donohue has worked in higher education since 2011, and has served as the Registrar for Emily Griffith Technical College (EGTC) since 2015. Cindy manages the Registration department and oversees Student Records, schedule development, the Catalog, and FERPA compliance. Her experience includes leadership, organizational effectiveness, collaborative decision making and process implementation. She has headed multiple initiatives that led to improved departmental efficiency with cross functioning teams. 

Capstone Project: Beyond Drop for Non-Payment - Evaluating the Impact of Timely Outreach on Re-registration examined the results of providing outreach to EGTC students who were dropped for non-payment and not re-registered after 30 days. In addition to the students who were contacted, a control list was created of 100 students during the same time period who had not been contacted. Though the impact of outreach on total enrollment was negligible, presentation of the findings in this report led to several collaborative discussions and initiatives that offered increased support at the admissions stage for all of our Career Technical Education students.
