"Darcy's current position of Registrar / Associate Dean of Enrollment Services entails leading the admissions operations, registration, student records management, graduation, student information dissemination, transfer credit evaluation, First Year Experience, and Testing Center functions of ACC.

Prior to joining ACC in 2006, Darcy worked for Regis University for almost five years as an Assistant Professor and Academic Advisor at the Las Vegas Campus. She began her career in higher education in 1998 working in the Student Services division at the University of Phoenix - Las Vegas Campus.

Darcy has a particular interest in, and passion for, exploring issues of importance to marginalized populations; specifically, increasing access to higher education and improving academic achievement of foster youth.

Darcy enjoys spending time with her daughter, Haley, and her extended family. She is a South Dakota native and while she has lived in large urban areas for a number of years, she is still a country girl at heart and enjoys getting back to the family ranch in Western South Dakota as often as possible. She tries to remain active, and enjoys participating in sprint triathlons where she is regularly passed up by people much older than she is (why they put your age in permanent maker on the back of your calf, she'll never understand)."
