Wisconsin administrator Larry Lockwood named UI registrar
The University of Iowa has hired Larry Lockwood to be the registrar, effective
June 1. Lockwood is currently associate registrar at the University of Wisconsin,
where he has worked for 27 years.
As Wisconsin's associate registrar since 1996, Lockwood has been one of
three executive officers responsible for direction, planning and policymaking
for the office. He helped to implement touch-tone registration, online Access
to Student Information, and a new student records system.
In addition to his leadership in the Office of the Registrar, Lockwood has
served on a number of advisory and service committees including the Provost's
Advisory Council, the University Academic Planning Council, the Madison Academic
Staff Association (president) and the Academic Staff Assembly Compensation
and Staff Benefits Committee.
Lockwood holds a B.S. in history and an M.S. in education from the University
of Wisconsin-Whitewater. His UI salary will be $104,000.
Lola Lopes, UI associate provost for Undergraduate Education, said Lockwood
has broad experience in planning and policy making for the Office of the Registrar
as well as hands-on experience with the many operational functions that constitute
the base mission of the registrar's office.
"Iowa's Office of the Registrar does an outstanding job serving students
and academic units in both the traditional role of securing and archiving
student records and the still-evolving role of collaborating with academic
units to help students reach their academic goals," Lopes said. "We
are confident that Larry Lockwood will provide the leadership necessary to
ensure that the office continues to be among the best in the nation."
Lockwood will manage all units of the Office of the Registrar including:
student academic records, degree clearance and certification, degree audit;
university commencements; athletic eligibility and certification; residency
review; transcript and verification services; enrollment support services
including course registration, course scheduling, course approval, and the
student information system. He also will collaborate with collegiate and departmental
units to support and strengthen the academic performance of students by provision
of timely academic data and analysis and by development of technological means
to monitor and support the curriculum in matters such as prerequisite checking,
course sequencing, and course transfer.
Lockwood is taking over for Jerald Dallam, who began phased retirement in
December after 21 years at the UI.
