Registrar Office Staffing: Summary Results of the AACRAO April 2015 60 Second Survey
American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO)
This AACRAO "60 Second Survey" asked respondents to identify the size, composition, name and level of decentralization for the Office of the Registrar. There were 1,389 unique institutional responses that represented 21 countries, commonwealths or territories, all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and 9 Canadian provinces as well as a variety of institutional types, control and sizes. Results from the survey indicated the data is comprehensive and creates an opportunity for highly disaggregated results, yet slightly more than 9 out of 10 U.S. and Canadian institutions indicated that their institution has a "traditional" registrar's office with the average number of full-time professional (salaried or hourly) staff employed in a registrar or related office is 10 (n = 1263, SD 12), while small institutions reported zero full-time professional employees and only one part-time professional employee. The following are appended: (1) Survey Instrument; (2) Count of Respondent by Country, Commonwealth, or Territory and State or Province, if applicable; (3) Count of Respondent by Institution Type; (4) Count of Respondent by Institution Size; (5) Count of Respondent by Institution Control; (6) Unduplicated Name of Office Responsible for Register Related Functions; (7) Reported Functions Associated with Institutions without a "Traditional" Office of the Registrar; and (8) Sample of Other Reported Decentralized Functions.
