submitted by

Dear faculty and staff colleagues:

I am excited to announce that Marah Jacobson-Schulte will join us as Augsburg University’s new Registrar. In this role, she will lead and oversee the work of the Registrar’s Office, cultivate strong collaborative partnerships across the University, and serve as a member of the Academic Affairs Leadership Team, key committees, and the UC-Leadership Forum. As the University Registrar, she will report directly to me as provost. Her official start date will be June 27, 2018.

Marah comes to Augsburg having served most recently as registrar for The Sage Colleges in New York. Prior to this position she served for several years as the Director of Experiential Learning and Community Engagement at the College of St. Benedict/St. John’s University. She brings to the position deep leadership experience and a broad understanding of higher education, informed by years of hands-on engagement with students, faculty, and administration. She also brings experience in developing infrastructure, implementing innovative strategies, and cultivating strong partnerships across divisions. She received the bachelor of science in community psychology, the master of science in higher education administration and is completing the doctorate in higher education administration from St. Cloud State University.

I extend my deep gratitude to Tom Kelsey and Christine Berkenpas for their able leadership of the Registrar’s Office during this interim period. I am also grateful for the dedication and commitment of the Registrar’s search committee, chaired by Chief Student Success Officer Katie Bishop, for its good work in identifying highly qualified candidates in the search process.

Please join me in welcoming Marah when she arrives on campus in late June.
