Director, Enrolment Services & Registrar

The Director, Enrolment Services & Registrar (ESR) leads with Strategic Enrolment Management (SEM)-informed thinking to support our learners and our institute across all stages of the student life cycle. Accountable to the Associate Vice President, Student Services, the director provides strategic and operational leadership for student-facing admissions and enrolment services; student registration and records; and our student information system. The director is strategically positioned as a primary collaborator and trusted advisor supporting academic planning, policy, quality assurance, and innovation both at the divisional and pan-institutional level. The director champions a strong service orientation, extensive connectivity with colleagues, and intuitive, technology-supported systems, processes and workflows – all to support an exceptional applicant-student experience, student success, academic integrity and quality, and sound enrolment management.

This position will be accountable for supervising, directing, and coaching a team of approximately 80 student success centered staff in Enrolment Services. Direct reports include the Manager of the Student Information System, Managers of Registration Services on each campus and a Project Lead for the modernization of Enrollment Services. This role has accountability for an operating budget of approximately $5.8 million. On a continual basis the director interacts with the Associate Vice President Student Services, Sask Polytech Deans and other school leaders, Student Services leaders, and many other departments to support student and institutional needs. Given the institution’s focus on the importance and value of strategic enrolment management, particular attention and focus on the synergies between this portfolio and SEM will be necessary to continue our student-centered focus. The director identifies data needs, uses institutional data to develop and implement service models, reporting, tracking and projecting admissions, and developing student profile reports that indicate predictors of enrolment success. In this role, the director will collaborate with leaders in other post-secondary institutions locally and beyond, and will be required to travel locally, provincially and nationally, representing Sask Polytech on related committees or in performance of their duties as necessary.
