Kim Bradford

As the leader of accreditation and regulatory compliance, Kim Bradford shepherds eVersity’s mission, vision, core values and objectives through continual alignment of processes based on the institution’s quality assurance framework.  A seasoned administrator with a broad background in public and private higher education spanning 35 years, Kim ensures that quality indicators from all areas are used to guide institutional response and innovations for student success. Holding degrees in education from two University of Arkansas System institutions, Kim began her career at a private career college where she led the institution through the regional accreditation process, making it the first private career institution in the state and the seventh in the region to earn this accreditation status. She later became president of the institution and was recognized as the first female and youngest college president in the state. Kim has served national and regional accrediting bodies as a peer reviewer. Her work at eVersity will pave the way to expand flexible, degree program options with personalized support to more students who need a college degree or credential. 

“Being a part of a higher ed start-up at this stage in my career is a dream come true. I’m able to put to use all of the things I’ve learned over the years and focus them on the most important part of the equation – the students.”
