The College of Architecture, Art, and Planning is home to almost 800 students, 100 visiting and full-time faculty dedicated to the study of the art and science of the built environment, and about 60 staff members. A small and vital college in one of the nation's foremost research universities, Cornell AAP has educated many of the most influential theorists and practitioners in the country. We are committed to the belief that architecture, art, and planning are simultaneously intellectual and material practices, and that leadership in cultural production demands both expertise in a specific discipline and wide knowledge in the liberal arts.
Cornell's Ithaca campus is the physical and academic center for Cornell AAP, but given the global nature of our interests, the college has extended its reach to include permanent programs in the historic center of Rome and in what was traditionally known as lower Manhattan's financial district area in New York City. The departments offer additional extensive opportunities for international study across the globe. In Ithaca, the college spans five buildings, including Milstein Hall, historic Sibley Hall, an 8,000-square-foot digital and analog shop facility and the Fine Arts Library in Rand Hall, Tjaden Hall, and the landmarked Foundry building.
Reporting to the Director of Student Services in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, the College Registrar is responsible for providing leadership and support with regard to student information systems, academic record maintenance, degree tracking, course offering, and enrollment planning. The Registrar supports college and university efforts to ensure the integrity, accuracy, and privacy of the student record.
The Registrar serves as the first point-of-contact for student services data requests and reporting, and collaborates with AAP IT Solutions, academic departments, and other university units on various data and reporting requirements.
Working closely with the Student Services team and academic program directors, the Registrar serves as the staff lead for the AAP academic review and department petitions committees. In addition, the Registrar plays a leading support role for the college's graduation events.
As part of the leadership team of the unit, the Registrar contributes to strategic planning for AAP student services. The Registrar represents the unit, as assigned, at meetings across campus. As the college representative to the university-wide college registrars meetings, the Registrar advocates for the college's interests on registrar issues and actively communicates relevant information back to the college and academic departments.
The College Registrar is accountable to the University Registrar on issues related to compliance with University-wide policies, and state and federal laws and regulations related to students' academic records. Partnering with the University Registrar, the College Registrar provides interpretation of and promotes and upholds policies, and federal and state laws and regulations as they relate to the college. College Registrars consult with and seek guidance from the University Registrar about college policies and procedures pertaining to students' academic records that impact, or have the potential to impact, University-wide policies, and federal and state laws and regulations.
