University of Virginia registrar named Stanford registrar

STANFORD -- Roger Owen Printup, registrar at the University of Virginia since 1982, will become Stanford University's new registrar effective July 1, Vice Provost for Student Affairs Mary Edmonds has announced.

Printup, 47, holds a doctorate in international relations and a master's in public administration from Syracuse University, and a bachelor's in political science from Principia College in Illinois.

From 1974 to 1986, he served as manager of records and research at Syracuse, developing one of the nation's first online student records systems encompassing admissions, financial aid, registration and records.

At the University of Virginia, Printup oversees a staff of 23 employees responsible for student registration, grade reporting, transcript production, classroom scheduling, enrollment certification and reporting, and diploma production and distribution.

He played a key role in the development of new information systems for the Charlottesville, Va., campus, including a computer-assisted advising system, a computerized events scheduling system, and a voice-response system for course registration and reporting of grades, account balances, financial aid awards and admissions status.

He also teaches in the University of Virginia's Woodrow Wilson Department of Government and Foreign Affairs, offering courses on public administration, public personnel administration, political socialization, and the government and politics of India (his doctoral dissertation focused on Indo-Pakistani relations).

At Stanford, Printup will manage an office of 30 full- time equivalent staff responsible for registration, records maintenance, classroom planning, academic standing matters, student data, the university bulletins and time schedule, and graduate student academic support.

He also will play a key role in the review, development and implementation of academic policy, and will be the university officer charged with the enforcement of all such policies approved by the Senate of the Academic Council.

Printup succeeds Sally Mahoney, who served as registrar from 1973 to 1990, and Jack Farrell, who served as acting registrar after that.
