Lisa Heming to Become Director of Student Services for Graduate Business Programs at Mendoza

It is with mixed emotions that I share the news that Lisa Heming has accepted a new position as the Director of Student Services for Graduate Business Programs in the Mendoza College of Business.  The business school team sought out Lisa for this post which provides her with student and faculty interaction which she very much enjoys.

This new role blends Lisa’s Alumni Association and Executive MBA experiences and taps her skill set.  She will be responsible for academic advising, organizing and implementing course registration, planning and scheduling curriculum, and organizing and delivering student orientations and diploma ceremonies. These duties support 500 students and span 4 business graduate business programs including the 1-year and 2-year MBA programs, Master in Accountancy and the Master of Science in Management.

Lisa joined  the NDAA team in January 2012 and in the last 2 ½ years, Lisa:

  • Launched the ND Conversations online program
  • Grew the Hesburgh Lecture Series by 25%
  • Initiated the virtual Hesburgh Lecture Series crossing multiple clubs and time zones
  • Launched the On the Sidelines Football Fridays Lecture Series
  • Supported the NDAA team through the ND Voice and team building committees

Beyond her professional contributions, Lisa provides an upbeat, can-do attitude and energy.

We are still working through the details of the timing of this change – especially with the holiday season approaching.  I will be working with HR on this position.

For now, please join me in congratulating Lisa on her new opportunity.

Thank you.

Sharon E. Keane, Director of Professional and Academic Programs
