doug mckenna & what the heck is a registrar?

The Registrar’s office is one that even those of us who have been in higher ed for a long time sometimes struggle to understand. The profession has come a long way from the days of long lines of students waiting to register for classes and taken even more importance during the pandemic. Doug McKenna, the University Registrar at George Mason University, joins us this week for a dose of Registrar 101 in the most fun way possible.

If you enjoy this episode and want to hear more from Doug — including the theme song we talk about — check out his podcast For the Record, which he hosts for the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers.

5ywMx1VoEpisode 66 welcomes Anne Sweet, Senior Program Coordinator in the Registrar’s office at Rutgers University in Camden, New Jersey. Jackie and Anne share an upstate New York connection, plus a SUNY connection, as Anne worked at SUNY Empire State College. Lougan feels even more left out during the show when Jackie and Anne talk about the best food spots in Vermont (Anne was a UVM alumna). We also chat about other podcasts we listen to, and how to be sure we keep up to date on them, and Anne talks about an interesting little town she used to live in.
