Elizabeth Amundson Named New University Registrar

By Eric Solomon

GW’s Office of Academic Affairs announced the appointment of Elizabeth (Beth) Amundson as University registrar effective Nov. 29. Amundson oversees such functions as class registration, academic records, classroom scheduling and degree certification.

Amundson is no stranger to the University. She is a two-time GW alumna, earning a BA in sociology in 1986 and her MA in higher education administration in 2001, and served as assistant and associate registrar at GW from 1998 through 2002. Amundson returns to GW after serving as registrar of The Johns Hopkins University School of Professional Studies in Business and Education.

“[Amundson] was the unanimous first choice of the search committee,” said Craig Linebaugh, associate vice president for academic planning and development. “She brings back to GW her strong customer service orientation, an in-depth knowledge of the Banner Student Information System, and experience managing a complex and diversified registrar’s operation. The members of the committee feel strongly that she is the ideal person to lead the Office of the Registrar both in enhancing customer services and in expanding the application of technology.”
