Kim Schroeder has spent more than twenty years consulting on audio visual archival collections for top corporations, museums, and academic institutions. She was an Adjunct Faculty member, beginning in 1999, and has taught Indexing and Abstracting, Introduction to the Information Profession, Administration of Visual Collections, Archives and Libraries in a Digital World, and Digital Imaging. Joining the full-time faculty in 2013, she added more technology and archival courses to her portfolio including Information Technology, Intellectual Property, and Oral History. Now, Coordinator of the Archival Program, she has updated the curriculum twice and created an Archival Advisory Board.

As Career Advisor since 2009, she works with students to develop their career path and train for job hunting. 

In 2012, she started the first ever National Digital Stewardship Alliance student group which focuses on digital preservation and curation. The student group has been very active hosting regional colloquiums and presenting at the national conference several times.

She also created the Alternative Spring Break Program which aims to give students an opportunity to intern for the week in nationally iconic organizations like the National Archives and Records Administration, the Smithsonian, several Presidential Libraries, MIT, etc.

Lastly, she manages several educational projects in the Digital Media Projects Lab (the DMPL) to enhance students hands-on skills with obsolescent formats in all forms of A/V and manuscript material.
