2015 AACRAO Strategic Enrollment Management Conference


"Solutions for Today's Higher Education Challenges"

AACRAO established the term Strategic Enrollment Management with the first SEM Conference in 1990. Now, 25 years later, the conference continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of SEM practitioners, as well as the students and institutions they serve. The AACRAO SEM Conference builds the foundation for a comprehensive enrollment management plan, showcases tools and resources to boost enrollment outcomes, and focuses on student success through creative recruitment and retention strategies.
