Registrar's offices used to be--and in some cases still are--physical manifestations of organizational charts: upper management resides in one cloistered area, occasionally behind a locked door, connected to the rest of the staff by multiple degrees of separation. During the summer of 2013, Elon University agreed to remodel the Office of the Registrar at the behest of its new titular appointee. Other than a fresh coat of paint and new carpeting, the office had not had a significant renovation for more than three decades. The physical change was long overdue. Importantly, this material makeover also encouraged a reimagining of the work of the registrar. The nature of the work had evolved rapidly to incorporate new technologies and meet the needs of the budding, tech-savvy millennial generation, but by and large, processes had remained unchanged. This article presents the changes that took place to create a new and modern Office of the Registrar at Elon University.
