The Office of the Registrar is the focal point for academic and financial information, advice and problem-solving.
The Innis Registrar's Office is here to help Innis students navigate their way through the University of Toronto over the course of their university career. Their aim is to provide accurate information and sound advising on academic, financial and personal matters in an atmosphere of trust, comfort and confidentiality. They are the custodians of a lot of information and take accountability to you very seriously. Here's a link to a non-exhaustive list of what the Registrar's Office does.
During the academic year, their office hours are Monday 9am - 6pm, Tuesday 10am - 4:30pm, Wednesday through Friday 9am - 4:30pm. During the summer, closing times are 30 minutes earlier. Every day from 1 - 2pm for lunch, the office is closed for lunch. You can reach the Registrar's office by phone at 416-978-2513 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Registrar's Office has a long history of employing students to work on special projects. In fact, three hugely successful student-involved projects are still in operation today. The first is askastudent, a blog where students can seek advice from other students. The second is fastforward, a site where students can use a faceted search to see what careers Arts & Science graduates have gone on to do, what their undergraduate programs were, what further schooling they undertook, and in what co-curricular activities they participated. And last but not least, the Registrar's Office specifically designed a site called starterkit that lets current Innis students respond to the unique needs, questions and concerns of incoming students.
Associate Registrar, Recruitment and Transition:
Hi! I'm Denise Gray, Associate Registrar for Recruitment and Transition in the Innis Registrar's Office.
While most of my work is with the first-year student population, I am an advisor who connects with students on all matters relating to their academic pursuits at U of T—from the recruitment stage all the way through to graduation. In these times, nearly all of my interactions with students has been remote. However, I look forward to one day soon returning to normal times where I can meet with students one-on-one in my bright and sunny office in the Innis Registrar's Office, located on the ground floor of the Innis College building.
Some interesting facts that you might not know about me is that I can speak Hungarian, I like to crochet in my spare time, and I am a big fan of the Boston Red Sox (though that last bit will become immediately obvious upon entering my office). My goals for this upcoming year would include getting to know as many students as possible and help incoming students feel supported. In these unusual times, we have had to be pretty creative in how we get to know students—Zoom, Skype, live chats, emails, etc. While these measures don't quite replace in-person interactions, I feel like I've already gotten to know some students and I look forward to getting to know the rest!
