Coordinator for Enrollment Services at William Rainey Harper College (retired)

Adrienne McDay has been a part of AACRAO for more than 30 years. Within her time in higher education she has carved out a career serving in multiple roles within academic and enrollment services for AACRAO and for the institutions for which she worked. Before retiring from William Rainey Harper College as Coordinator of Enrollment Services she served in nearly every position in the registrar’s office. Adrienne’s varied expertise was lent to various program committees and caucuses with AACRAO and her regional Illinois AACRAO. She made a particular and outstanding mark in ACRAO with regards to diversity, and access and equity; serving on the Diversity Task Force and later serving a three year term as Vice President for Access and Equity on the Board of Directors, a position which she helped to develop. Adrienne’s natural leadership and dedication to service helped her to rise to the position of AACRAO President in 2014 when she helped to establish AACRAO’s Core Competencies and sought to engage students and young professionals in the organization. Having also served as President with IACRAO Adrienne’s competency as a leader is unflagging. She is a role model to those in the profession and a distinguished colleague to us all.
