This is the second AACRAO registrar career profile report. The first was completed in 2015 and was limited to U.S. institutions; this iteration was not.

This is the second AACRAO registrar career profile report. The first was completed in 2015 and was limited to U.S. institutions; this iteration was not. Although the respondents are predominantly from the United States, there are also respondents from Canada, Armenia, Ivory Coast, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Arab Emirates. The AACRAO career profile series consists of reports on chief enrollment management officers (CEMO), chief admissions officers, and registrars. As states in the 2017 CEMO report, the two primary purposes of this series of reports are: 1) to build a longitudinal understanding of the career profile and position responsibilities for these three positions; and 2) to provide those seeking an equivalent position an understanding of the typical career path for doing so.
