Carol Stanley Selected As University Of Virginia Registrar

June 30, 2000 -- Carol Stanley, director of student information and records at Drexel University in Philadelphia, has been named registrar at the University of Virginia, effective July 1. She replaces Ann Antrobus, who retired June 30 after a 26-year career at the University, the last six as registrar.

The registrar’s office is responsible for all aspects of student record-keeping and course scheduling.

Stanley emerged from a field of five finalists, all of whom serve as registrars of large institutions. The search committee was impressed with her experience with automated student information systems; implementing in-house, Web-based applications and on-line training vehicles for students, faculty and staff; and her comfort level in dealing with the intricacies of a large system, said Rachel Most, assistant dean in Arts and Sciences, who co-chaired the committee.

Stanley, who goes by the nickname "Stash," holds a B.A. from State University College in Fredonia, N.Y.; an M.S. in education from State University College in Cortland, N.Y.; and an M.S. in information studies from Drexel, where she has been director of student information and records since 1985. Prior to that, she was associate university registrar at the University of Pennsylvania for three years and assistant and then associate director of Student Information, Records and Research at the State University of New York in Binghamton for seven years. At Drexel, she oversaw the changes that have characterized registrars’ offices in the past decade, as they moved more and more into the world of technology and the Web.

Aside from her work as a registrar, Stanley has been involved in athletics. Once an assistant softball coach at the Ohio State University and later the head varsity softball coach at SUNY-Binghamton, she continues to work with women’s softball teams and conduct clinics.

More recently, she has patented a number of athletics-related devices: the SWEET SWING (a golf training device) and the QUICK MITT and STAN-MILL MITT (both hand protection systems). The STAN-MILL MITT was added to the permanent collection of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. in 1988.

"Clearly, Stanley will be a fine addition to the University community," said Provost Peter Low. "We are delighted with the search committee’s choice and are looking forward to the continued growth and development of the registrar’s office under her leadership."
