CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Dr. Rachel Kirk, a Transfer Advisor at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, has been selected as one of 10 advisors in the nation to take part in the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) Emerging Leaders Program (ELP).

The NACADA is an association of professional advisors, counselors, faculty, administrators, and students working to enhance the educational development of students.

New Emerging Leaders and Mentors met on Oct. 6, 2013, at the Annual Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, to create partnerships and begin development, conversation, and group-building. Partners will develop goals pertaining to leadership in NACADA and continue their work together over the two-year program.

Kirk’s goals for her first ELP year are to determine an appropriate venue for gathering and sharing basic information for first time advisors and work with the appropriate personnel to develop a plan to accomplish that goal.

Kirk joined the Texas A&M Corpus Christi family in 2009 after working as a licensed mental health counselor and manager on the East Coast.
