Carol Crosely has been appointed as the new registrar at the University of Witwatersrand (Wits), the university said on Monday.

“Since starting at Wits in 1998, Crosley has held various positions. She is the former deputy registrar of enrolment at the university, a position she held from May 2013,” spokeswoman Vivienne Rowland said in a statement.

“Before that, from 2001, she was the deputy registrar and head of the student enrolment centre, which she played a pivotal role in establishing.”

Crosely was previously the faculty assistant registrar in the faculty of commerce, law and management (1991-2001) and managed the public relations portfolio in the vice-chancellor’s office (1998-1999).

Crosely took up her new position on Sunday.

“I recognise that crucial conversations need to take place on how students are serviced and supported, and about trust in the internal processes,” Crosely said.

She was looking forward to working with staff in developing a collective sense of priorities and strengths, and professionalising the administrative environment so administrative excellence could be achieved.
