Borrenpohl receives international AACRAO endorsement
Dr. Teresa Borrenpohl of North Idaho College has earned the Strategic Enrollment Management Endorsement from the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admission Officers (AACRAO). She is among an elite group of only 27 individuals internationally to earn this endorsement, which signifies that Borrenpohl has developed skills in the field of strategic enrollment management to meet the current and future challenges in the industry.
Borrenpohl is the Enrollment Services Center manager at NIC. She has a bachelor’s degree in economics, a master of public administration from Montana State University and a doctorate of educational leadership from Idaho State University.
To complete the Strategic Enrollment Management Endorsement Program research component, Borrenpohl implemented a recruitment strategy by developing a program that provided five purposeful high school visits to the schools in NIC’s service area. The five visits included applying to college, learning about the senior year expectations of the enrollment process, applying for scholarships and financial aid, completing academic assessments, and registering for courses. As a result of this program, Borrenpohl found a 25 percent increase in service area seniors matriculating to North Idaho College over the previous academic year.
