What happens in the Office of the University Registrar?
Jess Ray, Illinois State University Registrar, will present a talk entitled, “What happens in the Office of the University Registrar?” at 4:30 p.m. in the Founders Suite at the University Club. This is an opportunity to peak behind the curtain and gain a better understanding of the mysterious, glamorous and exciting life of those that work in the world of academic records management. Be the first kid on your block to truly understand the ancient and obscure mysteries associated with this office. Learn about the history of the profession, how academic records management developed at Illinois State University and the current responsibilities of the Office of the University Registrar. Find out if a connection exists between the registrar profession and postmodernism, labyrinths, Gnosticism, Albigensian heretical monks, and various secret societies (Spoiler Alert . No connections.). If you are looking for that sort of thing the Registrar recommends reading an Umberto Eco or Dan Brown novel.
All faculty, staff, annuitants and guests are welcome to join us at the University Club from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. this Friday in the Founders Suite in the Bone Student Center. You need not be a University Club member to attend. Additional information about U-Club events and activities can be found at our website, http://uclub.illinoisstate.edu/. Continued program support is provided by the Office of the ISU Provost and President. In addition, snacks and liquid refreshments are available at each meeting.
