Registrar and Associate Director, Office of Student Services
Shawna began her career at Cornell in 2007 in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) as the college Course Coordinator. In her current role as the College Registrar, she and her team help maintain college student records, evaluate non-Cornell credit, confer degrees, and also serves as a professional academic advisor. As a graduate of Cornell, a first-generation college student, and an external transfer student, Shawna can relate to students in many ways. Her day-to-day focus is to support and enhance the student experience by utilizing her knowledge of higher education, collaborate across campus and beyond with students, faculty, and staff, and promote and provide a supportive and inclusive community. Shawna is always happy to help students, faculty, and staff better understand college policies, graduation requirements, non-Cornell credit, and academic options and resources that are available. Shawna’s education includes a Bachelor of Science from The School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University and a Masters in Industrial and Labor Relations with a focus in Human Resources and Organizational Behavior from Cornell University. When Shawna is not in the office, she enjoys spending time with her family and hiking the finger lakes with her husband and Goldendoodle, Charlie.
