UofN Registrar – Asia

In one sense the Records system is the backbone of the UofN. As Howard Malmstadt, co-founder of the U of N, said to us at the beginning: “No records, no university.” Each time we accept a student into one of our schools, we are making a lifetime commitment to that person. In effect we are saying to them, any time in your life that you need an accurate record of your time with us we will be able to provide it for you.

As YWAM, we have not been strong in lifetime commitments and centralized reporting. But even in a resolutely de-centralized University, a functioning Records system is an absolute necessity. And it is one of the elements that hold our mission together.

Remember, even when the job seems repetitive and routine, that behind every e-mail, name, grade and form there is a human being, another YWAMer helping to advance the cause of the Kingdom. Over a year’s time, you will be helping thousands of missionaries to better prepare to get on with their ministry. You are a vital link in the Lord’s support and sending system for His workers.

Our desire is to be positive and transformational in all our communication, continually helping people discover what they can do and not just telling them what they can’t do. Our policies will serve YWAM’s vision and not hamper it.

With this web page dedicated to the work of the Intl Registrars we hope to provide you with resources, training and updates in what is happening, specifically in the area of UofN record keeping. We appreciate all feedback and comments that will help us work together and provide you with a sense of belonging to a team that looks after this area of the UofN.

Office of the UofN Registrar

The International Registrars work together with the UofN Provost Team.

In 2006 Patti Lee began to give leadership oversight to the UofN’s International Registrars, taking on the responsibility of the worldwide Records system of the UofN under Tom Bloomer (UofN Provost)

The primary function of the International Registrar is to ensure the faithful and true recording, storage and retrieval of essential student records for an entire U of N region. Thus, the International Registrar must be thoroughly familiar with the U of N policies, past and present catalogues, and the outline of the specific International Registrar activities and functions.

The importance of reliable record keeping is firmly established in the following scripture passages:

Luke 1:1-4: “Many have undertaken to draw up an account [compile an account] of the things that have been fulfilled among us [things accomplished among us], just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good [fitting] also to me to write an orderly account [write it out in consecutive order] for you, … so that you may know the certainty [the exact truth] of the things you have been taught” (NIV; brackets include NAS words)

2Co 4:2b: “by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God” (NIV).

Key principles are order and truth (verifiable facts): Academic administrators need to operate in both grace and truth. One without the other will either be too lenient or will kill (1Co 14:33,40 – orderly manner; Joh 1:17 – grace and truth are in Jesus).

Because of the centralized function dealing with all branches and schools in a region the International Registrar and staff can provide extremely valuable coordination and information or course offerings within the region. The International Registrar’s Office should serve as a coordinating office for these activities in a U of N region.

In 2003 he joined the Institute for the Nations, YWAM Australia’s training board and helped set up the Records System for the RTO (Registered Training Organisation) for Australia.

The word God gave him as he entered this season is from Nehemiah 4:19-20 ‘… and I said to the nobles and to the officials and to the rest of the people: The work is great and widely spread and we are separated on the wall, far from one another. In the place where you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.
