Hunt announced as new University Registrar

The University of Lethbridge Board of Governors has approved the appointment of Donald E. Hunt as the new University Registrar. Hunt follows Leslie Lavers, who retired from the U of L after a 31-year career as Registrar and Associate Vice-President Student Services.

"With an extensive business background in finance and accounting, decorated military service in the United States Army and information technology experience implementing complex institutional data systems, Don brings a wide variety of skills to his new position," says Vice-President (Academic) and Provost, Dr. Andy Hakin. "We look forward to having him on our team, and welcoming him into the U of L and broader community."

Hunt was most recently the deputy registrar at Case Western Reserve University, a 10,000 student, private university in Cleveland, Ohio. He also served as the interim director of Registrar Operations at the 16,000 student Cleveland State University.

Prior to joining the academic community, Hunt was a consultant and advisor to universities and colleges at Datatel Corp., an international supplier of high-volume databases and records management software.

He has worked as a quality assurance advisor to software development companies, and served in the United States Army as a finance and accounting specialist, where he received a Soldier of the Year Award and was posted to a number of locations worldwide.

Hunt holds a bachelor of science degree in business administration and a master of science degree in technology management from the University of Maryland, and continues to be active as a member of several professional development organizations focused on student recruitment, retention, registration and enrolment management.
