    The Registrar is a highly visible department representative, collaborating and sharing information with a broad group of internal and external stakeholders. The Registrar will be the “public face” of the Office of the Registrar, and
    therefore needs to be confident and comfortable in a wide variety of settings; be flexible and have the ability to adapt to changing campus dynamics. The Registrar must have solid facilitation and negotiation skills, as expectations will be
    diverse from many constituent groups. The Registrar needs to be resilient and able to weather discussions, debates, and disagreements – and help others understand that there are often competing priorities.

The Registrar is expected to take a
    leadership role in the accurate and efficient management of data in the primary functional areas of registration and student academic records.
