Buster-Williams Nominated for AACRAO LEAD

Kimberley Buster-Williams, vice president for enrollment management, has been invited to participate in a new initiative called AACRAO LEAD. AACRAO’s new initiative called LEAD (Leaders in Enrollment Advancing Diversity) will take a multi-pronged approach at identifying and preparing a diverse group of enrollment leaders to take on leadership roles in Enrollment Management in North America and across the globe.

The LEAD initiative will kick off at the 2018 SEM Conference with a Monday evening reception hosted by Buster- Williams and colleagues who have taken the lead on inculcating diversity and inclusivity values in SEM.

At the reception, the hosts will introduce the AACRAO LEAD theme, which will be built upon at future events. Plans include:

  • A diversity leadership development program for mid-level professionals.
  • A webinar series.
  • A scholarship program for AACRAO’s SEM Endorsement Program.
