***THIS POSITION IS OPEN UNTIL FILLED*** Within Academic Affairs, the Office of the Registrar serves the entire campus community and its alumni. It is responsible for the integrity and maintenance of all aspects of the student academic record from the point of admission to the University, progressing through the evaluation of transfer credit, registration, program and enrollment changes, verification of enrollment activity, degree posting, diploma preparation, graduation, and transcript production. The Office of the Registrar is also responsible for the administration of the University's courses, curricula, and academic scheduling - the cornerstones that support student enrollment and progress to degree. The Curriculum Analyst, under the direction of the Associate Registrar, is responsible for assisting the University with development and implementation of University courses and curricula. The incumbent is a resource for faculty and staff in the development of new courses and changes to existing courses and curricula, advising them of the appropriate processes and protocol, providing analysis for informed decision making, and ensuring compliance with academic policy. This position has primary and technical responsibility for maintaining an inventory of approximately 4,000 courses in the student administration system. This course database is the foundation that drives academic scheduling, registration, the degree audit, and degree posting. Additionally, the incumbent has primary responsibility for the coding of course requirements in the student administration system, which also includes identifying, testing and documenting best practices as well as trouble-shooting and resolving issues related to registration. The Curriculum Analyst's strong technical understanding of course attributes, academic scheduling, and student enrollment is integral to ensuring harmonious integration of these components. The Curriculum Analyst assists the Associate Registrar in assessing current curricular processes and workflow (e.g. course proposals, course modifications) and implementing efficiencies through best practices, innovation, and technology. Due to the multiple layers of interdependencies between courses and curricula that span academic departments and colleges, the incumbent provides analysis for conceiving new approaches and solutions to address the complexities. The incumbent works under the general direction of the Associate Registrar, but must use independent judgment to make decisions, interpret, and apply a wide range of policies and procedures related to courses, curricula, and academic scheduling.
