Professional Growth Plan

Goal Complete the Educational Technology Leadership Graduate Program and transition from an interim dean position in enrollment services to the permanent position at South Texas College. Throughout the graduate program and in the interim capacity, I have relied on my immediate supervisor, Vice President of Enrollment Services, for guidance, support, and direction. He has provided me with the insight and knowledge to serve in this capacity including the development of the college’s Strategic Enrollment Marketing plan and involvement in college taskforces and committees as well as professional learning communities.

Hellmich and George R. Boggs Submit action research project as conference presentation proposals at American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers Strategic Enrollment Management Conference (AACRAO SEM), Achieving the Dream (AtD) Strategy Institute, and American Association of Community Colleges Annual Meeting (AACC). Conference sessions allow peers to showcase best practices that are proven and replicable. The professional learning communities that develop at these conferences are invaluable resources for professionals in higher education. Peers and colleagues who are committed to student access, success, and completion will create the critical mass needed to achieve the degree attainment goals President Obama set forth in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Continue to lead the college in meeting the enrollment and graduation targets set forth in the Strategic Enrollment Marketing Plan. The targets have been set to ensure that the college meets the Closing the Gap goals outlined in the Texas Higher Education Board statewide plan. In addition, the targets will ensure that the college is meeting the educational access and degree attainment levels required for the region to be competitive in the global economy. Finally, achieving the targets will be critical in cultivating support should the college need a referendum (bond) to support campus expansion. Standing enrollment and graduation committees will continue to review pace, progress and targets. I will preside over the committees and report to the board of trustees. Ad hoc task forces will be created to review historical data and trends to ensure targets are met by campus and by program. I will continue to rely on the experience and expertise of my immediate supervisor. Although I am very familiar with regional data, I anticipate learning more about national data and higher education trends and their impact on local enrollment and degree attainment.
