Dr. Claire Brady

A high-ranking official at Lake-Sumter State College has been named as a two-year member of a prestigious board dedicated to student affairs.

Dr. Claire Brady, who serves as vice president for enrollment and student affairs, will serve on the James E. Scott Academy board. The group is comprised of accomplished chief student affairs officers representing the global membership of NASPA, Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education.

The primary role of the board is to provide advice and thought leadership on critical issues in student affairs and higher education and to advise the NASPA president and staff regarding these issues. Additionally, the board plays a key role in identifying principles of effective student affairs practice for recognizing and responding to the trends and challenges present in the field and in higher education more broadly.

“I know that Dr. Brady will make a significant contribution to the work of NASPA through this role while expanding her positive impact on higher education,” said LSSC President Dr. Stanley Sidor.

Board members serve at institutions that reflect a diversity of institutional types including public and private, two-year and four-year, and large and small colleges and universities.
