Registrar Alana R. Davis
“We conducted a nationwide search for the best candidates,” said Provost William Johnston. “After an exhaustive interview process, Alana had all the qualities we were looking for in choosing our registrar. We know she will oversee the office with a continued standard of high integrity and respect.”
Davis began her career at the college in 2003 as the assistant director of admissions, where she worked until 2005. In that capacity Davis oversaw a recruitment territory, managed transfer and international student inquiries and applications and served as a liaison to the A. Purnell Bailey Pre-Ministerial Scholarship Program. In 2005 she became the college’s assistant registrar, working closely with students, faculty and staff as she evaluated transfer credits, managed the course master schedule and enforced and reviewed academic policies.
Davis embraces her new role as registrar. “The Registrar’s Office plays such a vital role on campus,” said Davis. “We’re responsible for keeping records, helping incoming students navigate their way through the curriculum and upholding student privacy. I know what it means when a student graduates from this great college and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as R-MC’s registrar.”
In addition, Davis serves as the college’s staff representative and is a member of R-MC’s Safe Zone Ally program. Davis earned her B.S. in kinesiology and philosophy from the College of William and Mary in 2001 and is a candidate for a master of arts in English at Virginia Commonwealth University.
