Georgia McRae, who has served as Marquette University’s registrar since March 2005, will retire at the end of June. A retirement reception will be held in Georgia’s honor on Wednesday, June 19, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m in the AMU, Henke Lounge. RSVP details will be shared closer to the event.
“It has been my distinct privilege to serve the Marquette community as registrar. The supportive environment of the faculty and staff at Marquette are second to none and is what has made coming to work every day enjoyable.” McRae said.
McRae started her career as a paralegal, going on to work in the offices of the registrar at Seattle Pacific University and Seattle University, where she earned a master’s in public administration and where she worked for 11 years — four of which she served as university registrar.
“I wish Georgia a long and healthy retirement. I’m excited to announce that Seth Zlotocha has been named the new university registrar, effective June 17. Seth has a great deal of experience in this field and will bring his PeopleSoft skills to Marquette,” Vice President for Enrollment Management John Baworowsky said.
Chaired by Associate Vice Provost for Academic Support Programs and Retention Anne Deahl, the search committee for the new registrar included:
- Joya Crear, assistant vice president of student affairs
- Heather Hathaway, associate dean, Klingler College of Arts and Sciences
- Laura MacBride, associate director of institutional research
- Michelle Schuh, assistant dean, College of Health Sciences
- Adam Stout, associate dean, first-year and transfer admissions
- John Su, vice provost for academic affairs
- Susan Teerink, associate vice provost for financial aid and enrollment services
- Vicki Trautschold, associate registrar
Zlotocha comes to Marquette from UWM, where he has been the registrar for the past five years. Prior to his position as registrar, Zlotocha served in several different roles at UWM — both in the Registrar’s Office and in the Department of Enrollment Services — such as assistant registrar for curricular and faculty services, supervisor of registration and fees, records functional development coordinator and academic advisement coordinator.
“I recognize a strong parallel between the Jesuit mission at Marquette and the access and community engagement components of the UWM mission. Those aspects of the UWM mission are ones that have guided and inspired me in my career, and I am excited to continue supporting and facilitating a culture of learning, growth and discovery at an institution that lives and embodies its mission in the way that Marquette University does,” Zlotocha said. “I look forward to assuming the registrar position at Marquette University, a mission-driven institution that is large, complex and one that embraces a student-centered culture focused on care for the whole person and for the community.”
Zlotocha earned a bachelor of arts in social studies education from the University of Wisconsin — Eau Claire in 2002. He received a master of arts in history from the University of Minnesota in 2004.
