SEMQ bridges the gap between theory and practice with articles by thought leaders and practitioners who address the emerging dynamics of SEM, including: executive-level leadership, leading strategies, internationalization, research, academic orientation, and current trends.

Buster-Williams Presents at National Conference

Kimberley Buster-Williams, vice president for enrollment management, presented at American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officer’s (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 towards those interested in more intentionally engaging in effective SEM- based retention work.

AACRAO’s Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) Conference is an annual conference and provides conference 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 both the core concepts that are the foundation of SEM, as well as new and best practices. Approximately 1,000 people attended this year’s conference.
