RALEIGH — Campbell Law School’s Registrar Dr. Connie S. Newsome has been asked to rewrite a book chapter and appear on a podcast.

Newsome will be working with other editors, Jaci Casazza, Heather A. Chermak and Julia A. Pomerenk, on the revision of Chapter 10 of the book, “Academic Operations and the Role of the Registrar.” The chapter is titled “Considerations for Graduate Professional Programs.”

 “It was so much fun to have this slice of an opportunity for collaboration,” Newsome said.

Newsome was also invited to speak on the Higher Education and Real Diversity (H.E.A.R.D.) podcast on an episode about self-care.

Alongside Newsome, the podcast features Tiffani Robertson, associate director of Enrollment Management at Governors State University. Newsome and Robertson talk about how “pouring into yourself” and “beneficial selfishness” are essential to having the capacity to show up in service to others. They also discussed the upcoming American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Administration Officers (AACRAO) workshop on self-care for higher education professionals.

The AACRAO podcast H.E.A.R.D. is hosted by Tashana Curtis, Portia Lamarr and Ingrid Nutall. On their podcast, they talk about the intersection of DEI, higher education and their own lives.  

AACRAO is a non-profit, voluntary, professional association working to make higher education more responsive to learners. The association provides advocacy, research, and policy-based guidance and training to higher education professionals to smooth the path for learners at every stage of their journey.
