New Registrar – Tom Kelsey

submitted by

Tom Kelsey has accepted the position of Registrar, effective immediately. Tom has extensive experience (over 2 decades!) in the registrar’s office at Augsburg University. He has played a key role in several important initiatives, including: developing graduation pathways, revamping National Student Clearinghouse reporting, and adapting student services during the COVID19 pandemic. Tom has also served as our Certifying Official for Veterans Administration benefits, managed the records retention plan, created the course schedule, and maintained the academic catalogs. 

As registrar, Tom will partner with others across the institution to improve the experience for our students from admission to graduation and beyond, with a focus on student success. Tom will report directly to Kelsey Richardson Blackwell, Senior Director of Advising and Registration. Katie Bishop and Marah Jacobson-Schulte will continue to oversee these recent transitions for the remainder of the academic year. 

Please congratulate Tom on his new role!
