Systems and Data Analyst, Systems and Strategy Management – Office of the Registrar – Georgetown University Law Center
The key functions of the Office of the Registrar include exam administration; course registration and degree audits; state Bar, enrollment, and other certifications; and data reporting for ABA, Law Center departments, and other constituents.
The Systems and Data Analyst holds an essential role within the Officer of Registrar’s team in support the goals and mission of the Law Center – and as do all staff members, they provide excellent service to our constituents.
They serve as the project manager for the Office of the Registrar by coordinating with leadership and colleagues to make sure that the scope and direction of each project is on schedule, as well as with other departments for support; and develop, organize, and execute technological functions of the Office of the Registrar while creating and maintaining business processes documentation.
They also create and maintain informational and training materials for faculty, students, and staff as applicable; and shares responsibility for data reporting and analysis, as well as technical assistance during critical periods (e.g., registration, exam administration, grades processing, and commencement) with the Associate Director. Additionally, identify and implement new procedures and technologies to further enhance office processes; and serve as a back-up to the Associate Registrar on university-wide and Banner-related taskforces.
Working under very general supervision, the Systems and Data Analyst demonstrates initiative and good judgement in identifying which issues to bring to the attention of the Registrar, or a Senior Associate, Associate or Assistant Registrar; and they communicate clearly and effectively about technological processes.
As a technology manager, the Systems and Data Analyst answers complex questions and serves as an expert resource; trains relevant Law Center faculty, administrators, and students, on the use of our student information systems and related systems and applications; prepares and disseminates training and “how to” materials, as appropriate; and maintains assignment completion schedules.
They apply analytical ability to integrate differing complicated bodies of knowledge in oversight of broad major functions or functions that differ significantly from each other, resolving most questions and accomplishing most tasks without guidance.
Reporting directly to the Associate Registrar for Systems & Strategy Management, the Systems and Data Analyst assists in the training of full-time staff, temporary staff, and all other Law Center members on the use of the Student Information System (Banner) and assumes greater project leadership on certain tasks/projects.
They apply their in-depth knowledge and command of all policies, as well as their ability to interpret and apply those policies. They position also work with the Law Center’s Information System Team and the University’s Student Information System team, as well as the Office of the University Registrar.
The Systems and Data Analyst has a significant impact on the smooth functioning of the technical services supporting the work of the Office of the Registrar and its constituents; on compliance with federal laws relating to FERPA rights; and on students’ ability to meet ABA guidelines for graduation and the state bar exam.
As a technical lead within the central department for administration of the Law Center’s academic policies, they promptly and accurately to technical end-users and colleagues at the Law Center and across the campus. They use good judgement in presenting concerns to the Associate Registrar and proposing changes to existing policies, processes, and procedures in response to those concerns – matters that often directly impact students’ academic success, ability to sit for state Bar exams, and compete for employment.
The Systems and Data Analyst interacts with the numerous constituencies at the Law Center and on Main Campus, including students, faculty, deans, other administrators, and other technology personnel within the University as well as outside vendors.
The Office of the Registrar maintains a team-oriented environment; and it is vital that Systems and Data Analyst understands and accepts their role as part of the team.
