Return of Registrar's Office
St. Jerome’s University is undergoing a realignment of titling and organizational structure, to support building and maintaining relationships with its federated partner University of Waterloo, and its educational partners across the country. As part of this change, the Registrar’s Office has been revitalized and will be led by Sue Brubacher, who returns to the role of Registrar.
Historically, the Registrar’s Office played an important role in bringing the mission and values of St. Jerome’s University to the broader community. Through work in outreach, student recruitment, and admissions, partnership development, scholarships and bursaries, policies and procedures, upper-year student transitions and alumni engagement, the Registrar’s Office had an integral role, both within St. Jerome’s University and representing its interests at the University of Waterloo.
“At a time of great transition in the postsecondary environment, the university recognizes the importance of recognizing this role in a way that aligns with other professionals working in similar university roles across Canada,” noted the university’s President and Vice Chancellor, Peter Meehan. “By re-establishing the Registrar’s Office and Sue Brubacher’s role as Registrar, we hope that this will leverage and rekindle relationships to further advance the development of our partnership with the University of Waterloo, and provide new opportunities to attract bright, engaged students that will become engaged alumni, active donors, and community members.”
Brubacher, who has worked in a variety of roles at the university over the past 20 years, and most recently as Director, Enrolment and Upper Year Engagement, looks forward to returning to her role as Registrar. In particular, she will be focusing on advancing relationships with key stakeholders – School Boards, Guidance Counsellors, Teachers, parents, students, and community partners.
“The SJU Registrar is integral to our partnership with the University of Waterloo for outreach, recruitment, admission, scholarships, bursaries, alumni and community relationships,” stated Brubacher. “I am humbled and excited to be able to serve St. Jerome’s University in this role!”
