New Registrar for SFU

I am pleased to report that the Search Committee for the Registrar and Senior Director, Student Enrolment concluded its work and recommended to the President and to the Vice President Academic, that Ms. Kathleen (Kate) Ross be offered an appointment without term to the position. The President made a similar recommendation to the Board of Governors on 30 November and they accepted the recommendation. Ms. Ross will commence her new position at SFU on January 22, 2007.

Ms. Ross is a knowledgeable and skilled individual who has worked in the post-secondary arena in British Columbia for the past 20 years, and in a leadership role for the past 16 years. At Camosun College she has served in a variety of positions with increasing responsibility, including Director of Cooperative Education, acting Executive Director of Human Resources, and most recently, Registrar where she effectively managed the implementation of new software support systems for student services and enhanced enrolment management. Her references were unanimous that she is a well-regarded individual, respected by senior administration, by her staff and by the faculty and academic leaders of the college. The Search Committee is confident that Ms. Ross will apply those qualities effectively at SFU and we very much look forward to her arrival.
