Greetings and welcome to another year of OrACRAO. This year promises to be a challenging one, with shrinking budgets and uncertainty about the structure of public higher education at the state level. But those challenges are what makes our organization so important. Our 2013 conference theme was “Reaching the Summit Together”, and in tough times it’s even more important that we work together toward our common goal of serving our students and our institutions.
As always, OrACRAO will be there to help. We encourage you to post a question to the listserv, find a colleague on the website, attend the summer workshop on Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) at Oregon Tech’s Wilsonville campus on August 14, and of course to attend the annual meeting on May 4-6 at the Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton.
Have a great year!
