Biographical history

From 1947, the Registrar, reporting to the Vice-Chancellor, was responsible for the administrative work of the University with duties specified in the University statutes such as conducting Council elections, acting as Secretary of the Council, the Board of Graduate Studies and each Faculty and Faculty Board, and affixing the common seal of the University to official documents and degrees, but also for correspondence with public bodies, legislation, personnel matters (except academic appointments) and official publications. The Registrar initially directed the work of all administrative areas but as the University administration grew, new structures were developed. The Bursar was responsible for budgets, accounting services, business management and for residential housing. The Academic Registrar was the secretary of the Boards of the Institute of Advanced Studies and of the School of General Studies, responsible for administrative matters related to academic staff appointments and student matters. The Registrar (Property and Plans) was responsible for the coordination of planning, including the relating of academic plans to the provision of buildings and site development. Functions which had been managed by the Office of the Registrar were devolved to other areas such as University Information (later, Public Affairs Division) and Human Resources so that by 1998 the Office of the Registrar was no longer identified as an administrative unit. From 2006, the position of Registrar has headed the Division of Registrar and Student Services.
