West Virginia University Provost Joyce McConnell has named Aim�e Pfeifer the university registrar effective July 1, 2016. Pfeifer has been with the university since 2009 and interim registrar for nearly a year.
“Aim�e has tremendous expertise in the many functions a registrar performs,” McConnell said. “Perhaps even more importantly, she is committed to a ‘people-first’ approach in the Office of the Registrar, which is critical as the West Virginia University student body grows and diversifies.”
Pfeifer joined West Virginia University as the associate registrar for student services, responsible for the maintenance of student records, in 2010. She previously worked in the registrar’s office at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, and at Capital University in Ohio and has more than 10 years of experience in the field.
“I am excited to continue the great work of the Office of the Registrar at WVU,” Pfeifer said. “We have a fantastic team in place, all dedicated to maintaining the highest standards for the institution while providing exceptional service to our students.”
The Office of the Provost did not conduct a search for the registrar position but appointed Pfeifer directly. “At this time WVU needs a Registrar who has a strong fundamental sense of the role of the registrar, has the ability to work as an engaged team player, and, has tremendously nuanced institutional knowledge. Thus an internal hire makes very good sense, since we already have such a person at WVU” said Vice Provost Russ Dean. “We are confident that Aim�e will continue to lead her team in providing the excellent student services that the Office of the Registrar already offers.”
