Office of the Registrar

The Registrar plays a unique role in the University’s Administrative/Management hierarchy. The position constitutes the hub around which the Management of the University revolves. One of the numerous functions of the Registrar is that he acts as the Chief Administrative Officer of the University, and the custodian of the University's seal and is also responsible to the Vice-Chancellor for the general administration of the University. The Registrar provides guidance for the framework within which policies are made. The Registrar’s Office does not make rules and regulations, but once these have been made by the appropriate University Board or Committee, it ensures their enforcement/implementation.
The current Registrar is Mr. J. K. Nyan.


The Registrar's duties may be categorised as follows: The first category is Secretarial. In this group, the Registrar's duties include:

* Stewardship of the constitutional and business rules and procedures.

* Co-ordination of the flow of business in terms of both timing and contents.

* Transmission of discussions and decisions of Board/Committees.

* Provision of information and documents to facilitate decisions.

In the second category of duties, the Registrar is responsible for:

* The recruitment and training duties and career development of Professional and Senior Administrative Staff of the University.

* Getting administrative assistance to the point and priority of need in the University, for example, through structural change in the administration.

* Directing management and administrative function, e.g. records, establishment, appointments, accounts, admissions, etc.

In the third category, the Registrar acts as an advisor to senior management both as a member of the University's Senior Team of Officers and as a confidential advisor to the Vice-Chancellor and University Boards and Committees, chiefs among which is the University Council.

In all these duties, the Registrar has an obligation to contribute ideas and policies as well as to follow legitimate instructions.


In all the three categories, the Registrar delegates much of his duties to his deputies who head the four main divisions of his Office, namely, Academic, Human Resource, Legal, Consular and General Service and Public Affairs.

The Office of the Registrar has been restructured to make the sectors within the office more effective, efficient and well focused in helping to accelerate the development of the University.

The entities are:

* Division of Academic Affairs (DAA)

* Division of Human Resource (DHR)

* Division of Legal, Consular and General Service (DLCGS)

* Division of Public Affairs (DPA)


"Monday Durbars" of the Registrar's outfit have become a very popular gathering of administrative professionals. At these durbars, matters of importance and concern to administrative professionals' duties are discussed and plans put forward for the week ahead. Much of the durbars are also devoted to presentation of papers by officers. The presentations are critiqued by colleagues in a peer review manner and they act as a very important source of enlightenment to, especially new entrants to the profession.

The following are the senior administrative staff under the office of the registrar.
