New registrar, associate VP for instruction named
Fiona Liken became registrar and associate vice president for instruction July 1, overseeing the Office of the Registrar and the Office of Curriculum Systems. Both offices report to the Office of Instruction and have worked together for the last five years on the implementation of Athena, the centralized student information system that houses curricular and registration data. With a central leader, the two units will work more efficiently and effectively in business processes and in response to the needs of the university community.
For the last several years, Liken has been director of the Office of Curriculum Systems and assistant vice president for instruction. She has been an integral part in the leadership teams for initiatives with high academic impact; among these are implementation of the General Education Curriculum, the First-Year Odyssey Seminar program, and Athena, as well as helping develop the 2010 UGA strategic plan. She earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from California State University and a master's degree in public administration from UGA.
Rosemary Segreti, who managed the Office of the Registrar as interim registrar, has returned to her position as senior associate registrar.
