ALBANY — Albany Technical College Vice President of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management Pam Heglar has received an International Exemplary Leader award from the Chair Academy.

Heglar received the award during a ceremony held during the Chair Academy’s Leadership Conference at the Sheraton Atlanta earlier this week.

“I am honored by this award,” Heglar said. “It has been a joy and a privilege to work with a great administration team, faculty and staff. I am inspired daily by the awesome students we serve, and by their courage and commitment. My colleagues make my work easier, and the students make it worthwhile.”

While at Albany Tech, Heglar has cultivated and supported partnerships leading to increased student recruitment, retention and graduation.

She also reorganized a cross-departmental Enrollment Management team, implemented a “One-Stop Shop” student services model and created a Student Tracking and Retention Services student advisement system. Implementation of Nemo Q and Degree Works IT were also a result of her strong leadership and commitment to student success.

Heglar has worked in education for more than 30 years. She came to Albany Tech more than five years ago from Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, Fla., where she served as the director of Student Services.

Heglar holds a bachelor of arts degree in Sociology and a master of arts degree in Public Administration from the University of South Florida.
