Campus interviews for registrar finalists begin next week

Four finalists have been identified in the search for Iowa State’s next university registrar, and they'll interview on campus in November.

  • Candidate 1, Nov. 3-4
  • Candidate 2, Nov. 4-5
  • Candidate 3, Nov. 12-13
  • Candidate 4, Nov. 14-15

Candidates' names will be announced one business day before their visit. The candidates will meet with faculty, staff and stakeholders. They'll also hold an open forum at which they'll address the question: How can the office of university registrar best support Iowa State’s mission and enrollment management? Forums will be held in the Memorial Union from 11 a.m. to noon on the second day of each candidate's visit:

  • Monday, Nov. 4, Campanile Room
  • Tuesday, Nov. 5, Soults Family Visitor Center
  • Wednesday, Nov. 13, Soults Family Visitor Center
  • Friday, Nov. 15, Oak Room

University registrar responsibilities include strategic planning, budgeting, compiling data-driven reports, managing student record information and overseeing transfer student success initiatives. The position reports to Laura Doering, associate vice president for enrollment management in the academic affairs division.

The new registrar will succeed Mark Simpson, who left in June for a position at the University of Texas, Austin. Senior associate registrar Jennifer Suchan is serving in the role on an interim basis.

More information about the candidates, including curriculum vitae and interview itineraries, will be posted on the provost's office search page as it becomes available.
