Joseph L. Greenberg, the University's acting registrar since October 1999, has been appointed registrar for a five-year term.
Greenberg, who earned a doctorate in English literature at Princeton, was a lecturer in the University's English department before joining the administrative ranks as assistant registrar in 1978. He earned several promotions, most recently to the position of deputy registrar in 1993.
Greenberg assumed leadership of the registrar's office on an interim basis last year, when Registrar C. Anthony Broh left to become director of research at the Consortium on Financing Higher Education.
He has implemented significant automated systems in the registrar's office, including one that allows students to view their academic records on the web, and has been a leading team member in the campus-wide initiative to upgrade administrative information systems. He also made significant contributions in planning the construction and renovation of academic buildings, and has been "an important resource and participant in making decisions regarding academic policy and other matters," said Provost Jeremiah P. Ostriker.
In addition to his Ph.D. degree from Princeton, Greenberg holds a master's degree in English literature from the University of Minnesota and a master's degree in education from Temple University in Philadelphia.
"President (Harold) Shapiro and I are delighted that Joe has accepted this position and we look forward to continuing to work with him on a variety of issues," Ostriker said.
