The Office of the Registrar at Kwantlen Polytechnic University is currently seeking a dynamic and experienced individual for the position of Assistant Registrar. This management position is responsible for student systems functional operations, operational and ad hoc reporting on student related data, and managing the maintenance of pan-divisional data including PENs and high school transcripts. In this role, you will also provide leadership to the enrolment reporting team, define and implement the functional configuration of the university student information systems, and act as an internal business systems and procedures consultant to the Office of the Registrar and other student focused areas. This position will also act as the Associate Registrar, Registration, Records, and Systems, when the Associate Registrar is unavailable.
This Assistant Registrar position can be a step in the career path towards the role of Registrar. Candidates will be recognized gurus in student information systems and have a detailed understanding of the broad responsibilities of the Office of the Registrar. You should believe that “computers don’t make mistakes” – and be able to prove it by separating operator error from configuration error from genuine bug. Your friends might call you a geek; and that’s a good thing because this position will see you authoring SQL, HTML, CSS, and Gantt charts. Certification as a Microsoft Office Specialist in MS-Excel, MS-Word, and MS Access should be so easy, you’ve already done it.
KPU is a post-secondary institution – so you should have a strong understanding of how the academy runs, the role of faculty, and how curriculum and systems relate to each other. Experience in curriculum administration or logistics and a degree audit system is an asset.
The ability to communicate patiently and effectively with a diverse range of people and situations is vital in this role, as is the ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with University administration, faculty, and staff.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate experience as a functional lead administering a Banner Student module (admissions, scheduling, registration, records, graduation) in or for the Office of the Registrar. If you’re the right “geek”, experience in a comparable student information system will do. Our office is fast paced and always changing, so your ability to problem solve, organize, prioritize, and meet deadlines is the only way you’ll get the job done.
Qualifications for this new position include: a bachelor's degree, preferably in computer science, information technology, or library/archival science, plus a minimum of seven years recent related experience in or supporting the Office of the Registrar, or an equivalent combination of education, training and experience.
If you are interested in joining an exceptional team of student service professionals, please forward your resume and copies of your post-secondary transcripts, quoting competition number 13-06 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will begin reviewing applications on May 27, 2013. This opportunity will remain open until filled.
