The role of the Registrar during a Faculty Strike

Work stoppages by teaching staff are infrequent events, but the consequences for students and the institution are significant. Are you prepared if your faculty or teaching staff withdraw their services and the academic term is disrupted? This session will describe how the University of Manitoba responded when the Faculty Association went on strike mid-term in Fall 2016. The role of the Registrar's Office will be highlighted, along with information that may help you prepare for your next labour disruption.

Susan Husum, University of Regina & Pierre Guay, Visual Schedule Builder

Taming U Regina Wild Registration!!!

Although this is not the University's first rodeo the introduction of Visual Schedule Builder (VSB) at the University of Regina brings a new twist to the registration ride. VSB helps students find their optimal schedule using an easy-to-use, interactive interface. Attend this session to learn why the University embarked on the implementation of VSB and how students, staff, and advisors benefit.
