A message from Provost Philip Rous and Vice Provost for Enrollment Management and Planning Yvette Mozie-Ross:
We are delighted to announce that Pamela Hawley has been named University Registrar, effective July 1, 2016. She has served as Acting University Registrar since July, 2015.
As University Registrar, Ms. Hawley will continue to provide leadership and support in developing the conceptual framework and implementation of services essential to the academic enterprise, including oversight of academic records, course registration, class scheduling, course articulation and transfer, degree audit, and undergraduate progression toward degree completion. She will continue to partner with the faculty, academic and administrative department heads, faculty senate, and student government to develop, implement, and educate the campus community on policies and procedures on matters concerning the academic record, including student data compliance and record retention.
Ms. Hawley joined the Registrar’s Office in 1998 and for the past 18 years has served the UMBC community in many professional capacities. Her roles and responsibilities have ranged from transfer credit evaluator to assistant registrar for records and registration to associate registrar for systems development. She was instrumental in the implementation of the PeopleSoft Student Administration (SA) system, serving as functional lead for the records and registration module. In collaboration with campus partners, she has also been instrumental in successfully leveraging delivered PeopleSoft functionality, as well as facilitating enhancements to the system to improve efficiencies in academic processes, including the assign advisee functionality, incomplete grade contract pilot, and first year interim reporting, among others.
Ms. Hawley’s commitment to UMBC extends well beyond the Office of the Registrar. She has played an active role in supporting campus shared governance and institutional initiatives and priorities, having served as secretary for the Professional Staff Senate (PSS), an instructor for the Introduction to an Honors University (IHU) seminar, a member of the On-Campus Alumni Committee, and a member of numerous student retention and student success workgroups and committees. She earned her B.A. in English at UMBC in 1994.
As Ms. Hawley assumes her new leadership role as University Registrar, we are confident she will continue to contribute her considerable skills and experience to advance the UMBC community. Please join us in congratulating her on a well-deserved promotion.
