New Deputy Registrar Appointed

November 11th, 2019

Stephen McAuliffe has been appointed as the University’s new Deputy Registrar with responsibility for senior-level co-ordination of activities and services to support the University’s students.

Stephen is currently Academic Registrar at the University of Birmingham and has worked in the higher education sector for almost 20 years in a wide range of student-facing roles including a four-year period as Director of Careers and Employability at Nottingham and a six-month secondment to the University of Nottingham Malaysia.

Before joining the University of Nottingham for the first time in 2008, Stephen worked at the University of Kent and as Head of Student Services at the Kent Institute of Art and Design. After leaving Nottingham in 2012, Stephen joined the University of Essex as Academic Registrar before moving to Birmingham in 2016.

Taking up the role of Deputy Registrar from February 2020, Stephen will be working to create an integrated, informed and responsive approach to enhancing the student experience across Student Services, Careers and Employability, Sport, Campus Life and Residential Life.

Enhancing the student experience has been a passion for Stephen since his first role in higher education, as the Student Union President at Canterbury Christ Church. His role at Nottingham will also have a strong focus on joining up service provision across all student-facing support provided both centrally and, working closely with Faculty Operations Directors, in schools and faculties to ensure the best possible experience for students and the most efficient and effective delivery of operations.

Dr Paul Greatrix, Registrar said: “I am delighted to be welcoming Stephen back to the University of Nottingham as our new Deputy Registrar. He will be taking on the leadership of an outstanding team of professional staff and we all look forward to working with him as we continue to support the successful delivery of the University’s strategy across student facing areas.”

Stephen McAuliffe said: “I am thrilled to be joining the University of Nottingham in this exciting role. At this current time, the higher education sector faces many challenges and I look forward to working with the team in partnership with our students to address these. Nottingham has a proud and justified reputation for a tremendous student experience across the UK, China and Malaysia and I hope I can contribute to enhancing that further.”
