Buster-Williams Presents at National Enrollment Planning Conference

Kimberley Buster-Williams, vice president for enrollment management, presented at the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) SEM Conference in Washington, D.C. on Monday, November 12, 2018. Buster-Williams presented with colleagues Alicia Moore (Central Oregon Community College), Tara Sprehe (Clackamass Community College) and Jody Gordon (University of the Fraser Valley). The 90-minute session was titled, “SEM and Retention: A Perfect Pair”. The session was interactive and fast-paced. Presenters discussed a wide range of potential retention strategies and focused on these three aspects; access, progression and completion. The session was geared to those interested in more intentionally engaging in effective SEM-based retention work.

AACRAO’s annual Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) Conference provides participants with practical solutions, promising practices, training, research and guidelines for enrollment management practitioners looking to maximize student success, improve operational efficiency and enhance the financial well-being of their institution.

The SEM Conference brings together a comprehensive lineup of experts, researchers and practitioners who showcase core concepts that are the foundation of SEM, as well as new and best practices. Approximately 1,000 people attended this year’s conference.
