ODU REGISTRAR'S OFFICE SWITCHES DIVISIONS

The Old Dominion University Office of the Registrar has been transferred to the Office of Academic Affairs from Finance and Administration.

This more closely aligns the office with academic policies, procedures, and day-to-day operations, ODU President Roseann Runte said. In addition, the registrar, under the leadership of Thomas Isenhour, provost and vice president for academic affairs, and with the assistance of faculty committees, will look seriously at scheduling across the university and at student retention rates. Coordination of scheduling will support the strategic plan goal of using resources to the best advantage, she said.

"Improving graduation rates is both a service to our individual students and the Commonwealth of Virginia," President Runte said. "It will also contribute to our efforts to improve Old Dominion's national ranking.

"We cannot change the retention numbers for the past, and since the calculation is based on a six-year average, we cannot avoid the past. Instead, we will continue to improve the present while building a better future."
