The Registrar’s Office (RO) is involved in all aspects of academic life, including undergraduate student marketing and recruitment, admissions, enrolment, examinations, development and application of academic policies, and convocation. As a result of its mandate, the RO stewards a significant volume of data that is critical to the success of the University and its stakeholders. This data includes student records as well as prospective students, applicants and applications, financial aid and awards, academic policies, scheduling and classrooms.
The Associate Director, Data Analytics and Development (AD, DAD) in the RO leads a team of data analysts and developers who create and continuously improve the necessary solutions, models, and projections to ensure that various strategic issues and priorities are critically examined and that the planning activities are grounded in sound and reliable evidence.

The AD, DAD and their team ensure understanding and appropriate use of the breadth of RO data for decision-making, strategic enrolment management, and strategic planning across campus. The incumbent will develop and maintain analytics and data dashboards to address core business objectives and monitor enrolment and usage trends.
The AD, DAD also ensures the design, implementation, and ongoing enhancement and support of technical development solutions and best practices within the RO to support efficiency and continuous improvement. In this capacity, the AD, DAD and their team will work with RO stakeholders and leverage the expertise of the Business Systems Analysis team as well as campus Continuous Improvement and Change Management resources.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is co-ordinated within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
The University values the diverse and intersectional identities of its students, faculty, and staff.
