RE: Executive Director, Enrolment Services

I am very pleased to announce that Richard Levin will be joining the University of Toronto as Executive Director, Enrolment Services. The position of Executive Director has been created to help the institution transition from the current, relatively disconnected enrolment management model to an integrated one that supports institutional, faculty, and campus strategic objectives and enrolment goals. The central offices of recruitment and admissions, specifically, will be brought together under the leadership of the new Executive Director.

Richard brings a wealth of experience in enrolment management and student-centred processes to the role of Executive Director. Having graduated with a BA (honours) in Psychology from the University of Winnipeg in 1984 and an MA in Psychology from York University in 1986, he worked for the Manitoba Government's departments of Health and Education from 1986-1989. In 1990 he became a senior policy advisor and later manager in the Ontario Government's ministries of Skills Development and Education and Training before his appointment as Executive Coordinator, Policy and Planning, with the Education Quality and Accountability Office in 1995.

In January 1999, he became Director of Student Records and Registrar at the University of Manitoba. He then joined the newly established UOIT as Vice-President, Strategic Enrolment Management and Registrar in June, 2002, where his appointment was later extended to include Durham College. Since September 2008, he has served as University Registrar at McMaster University.

Richard is a member of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), the Association of Registrars of Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC) and the Ontario Universities Registrars' Association (OURA). He is keenly interested in evidence-based decision making and has published and presented on issues ranging from accountability to student service. We look forward to welcoming him when he takes up his position on November 1st.
