AACRAO's SEM Quarterly explores the varied aspects and broad potential of strategic enrollment management in higher education and serves as an essential outlet for broader higher education research topics. SEMQ topics include course selection, advising, business practice, marketing, record-keeping, institutional research, and more.

The SEMQ Editor-in-Chief works collaboratively with the Managing Editor and SEMQ Editorial Board to provide the journal's overall vision and guidance.

  • Writes an “Editor’s Note” for each quarterly issue and the annual SEM Prep issue.
  • Helps identify Editorial Board members as needed.
  • Hosts an annual meeting at the SEM Conference (or in the fall virtually) to touch base and build community with the Editorial Board members.
