Segreti named interim registrar

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

As previously announced, Jan Hathcote retired on Jan. 4th as University of Georgia Registrar. During the ongoing search for a new registrar, UGA Senior Associate Registrar Rosemary Segreti has been named interim registrar. Her appointment began on Jan. 5th and will continue until a permanent registrar is in place.

“For the last 25 years Rosemary Segreti has been responsible for successfully managing teams and collaborating across departments, schools and colleges to implement new information systems and business processes,” said Rahul Shrivastav, vice president for instruction. “Rosemary is well prepared to lead the Office of the Registrar until a permanent replacement for Jan Hathcote is in place.”

Segreti has served as UGA’s associate registrar since 2006 and was promoted to senior associate registrar in July 2016. She received both a bachelor of arts degree in health education and sociology (1983) and a master’s degree in information systems (1997) from The City University of New York.

Segreti is well-known across the UGA campus as a collaborator and problem-solver. She served on the ConnectUGA project as an implementation team leader for the Office of the Registrar during the implementation of the Athena student information system (Banner), which replaced the 30-year-old legacy systems. In addition to being instrumental in the conversion to Banner, Segreti has been involved in a number of other data driven projects in the Office of the Registrar, including improving business processes for registration, creating electronic transcripts, graduation processing, course scheduling, records maintenance, and DegreeWorks and DegreeWorks Plans, a plug-in to the Banner software that allows students and advisors to plan and track courses toward on-time degree completion.

Segreti was featured in a recent Columns profile for her philanthropic watercolor painting.
