2021 AACRAO Elections - Vice President at Large Candidate

In late 2020, the AACRAO BOD adopted a vision and associated goals focused on "a community centered on learner success driven by professional excellence and leadership in enrollment and academic services."  Rooted in collaboration, innovation, inclusivity, inquiry, and integrity, the associated goals are to be realized by 2026.  Focused on these values before their current iteration, I have served as an AACRAO leader as chair and member of multiple committees, transfer conference director, ad hoc committee member, nominations and elections, author, and presenter at the annual meeting, webinars, tech/transfer, and SEM.  Having addressed topics ranging from social media, access, transfer, policy, and professional competencies to data-driven enrollment strategy, my skills and experiences align perfectly with an "at large" position.  I understand the organization and how we might address the challenges facing higher education today.  If elected, my goal will be to meet those challenges and achieve AACRAO’s goals to benefit the membership and the learners we serve.
