Yarbrah Peeples accepts new position with National College Advising Corps


In addition to being an IHE alumna, Yarbrah served for six years as program director for the Georgia College Advising Corps (GCAC), an outreach program of UGA's Institute of Higher Education.

In her new national role, she will support current programs in Georgia and South Carolina (including GCAC) and assist with the onboarding of new programs across the country. Yarbrah says, “My goal is to help programs increase their impact so they can help more underserved students achieve their dreams of attending and graduating from college.”

In 2009, as a graduate student, Yarbrah helped launch GCAC under the leadership of IHE Director and Interim Provost Dr. Libby Morris. After nearly a decade of service, Yarbrah is most proud of her contributions to training development, program expansion and mentorship of current and former advisers. The CAC honored Yarbrah with the 2018 Excellence in Data Driven Leadership Award in recognition of her success as program director and, specifically, for a 5% increase in college enrollment across all of the high schools served by GCAC.

Yarbrah recognizes the impact of IHE, “My time in IHE changed my life! I was taught by outstanding faculty, mentored by Dr. Libby Morris and trained in leadership and management through my graduate assistantship with GCAC.”
