University Registrar

The Johns Hopkins University (JHU), one of the world’s premier research universities, invites applications and nominations for an inaugural University Registrar.  Housed in the Provost’s office and reporting to the Vice Provost for Student Affairs, JHU seeks an experienced and innovative leader that will successfully partner across the University to coordinate university-wide registration operations, cross-divisional issues, and critical university reporting and compliance requirements.  The new University Registrar will join Hopkins at a time of tremendous momentum and opportunity as the university has embarked on a transformative effort to reimagine registration activities and overall delivery of student services.

Under the leadership of President Ronald Daniels, JHU has been deeply focused on a strategic vision to create “One University” while removing barriers and fostering cross-divisional collaboration.  Over the next five years, the Student Services Excellence Initiative (SSEI) will propel JHU forward to provide more comprehensive academic and support services to students by reducing administrative barriers and increasing communication and reporting.  This substantial investment will provide for the creation of the University Registrar position and an opportunity to help shape the future of registration at Johns Hopkins University.  

The ideal candidate will be a committed and experienced professional who has thrived in complex, highly demanding, fast paced environments of excellence where expectations for performance and productivity are high.  S/he will have experience as a Registrar and/or bring a deep familiarity with trends and challenges in the field.  The University Registrar should bring a record of successful leadership, consensus-building, and an ability to build sustaining and effective relationships with faculty, staff and University leadership.
