Administrative history

The Registrar was appointed by the Board of Regents, but had a closer working relationship with the Senate; as Secretary, he kept the records of the latter body. The Registrar's responsibilities included conducting elections of graduate representatives to the Senate and the Board of Regents, arranging enrollment into and withdrawal from Victoria College, course transfers, applications for scholarships, petition requests, examination requests, and timetable problems; as well as advising on academic matters and organizing functions such as the Charter Day Convocation, Baccalaureate Convocation Service, and the Emmanuel College Graduation. Although the Registrar was technically responsible for Emmanuel, the theological school appointed one of its own staff members to administer the registration of its students.

Custodial history
