Kristina Brantley, assistant registrar at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, has been named university registrar at Stetson University.
Brantley will join Stetson effective Oct. 15, leading important initiatives in collaborating the university’s comprehensive strategic enrollment and student success efforts. She will lead a team overseeing all aspects of student academic record management and integrity.
“I am thrilled and honored to be joining the Stetson community,” Brantley said. “I have been impressed by Stetson’s academic rigor, dedication to leveraging technology, focus on values and commitment to social responsibility.
“There is a vibrancy and energy on this campus that is exhilarating. I look forward to meeting everyone and working with this community toward strategic enrollment initiatives and student success,” she said.
With more than 20 years experience in higher education in the registrar and enrollment management fields, Brantley also worked in residential life at the start of her career. She has served at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville since 2009.
