After a nationwide search, the Office of Student Academic Success at Ohio State is pleased to announce that accomplished strategic leader Cherise Olmo will be joining the office as a new associate registrar, starting August 2, 2021.

Olmo comes to OSAS’s Office of the University Registrar from Ohio University, where she currently serves as associate registrar for operations. In her current role, Olmo oversees and supervises three critical units in the Office of the University Registrar: Academic Records, Registration, and Catalog and Scheduling Services.

"Cherise is a talented and equity-minded leader who has extensive experience supporting diverse student populations," said Dr. Beth Hume, vice provost for Student Academic Success. "We’re so excited to have her join our Office of the University Registrar as associate registrar."

Prior to working at Ohio University, Olmo served as associate registrar for operations at Massasoit Community College in Brockton, Massachusetts, where she was responsible for coordinating the master course schedule and room scheduling. She also worked as record service coordinator at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the coordinator of veterans and military personnel student services at the College of Dupage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.

At Ohio State, Olmo will oversee Academic Records, including grading, transcripts and Ohio residency for tuition, plus the Transfer Credit Center.

She said she’s looking forward to coming to Ohio State and collaborating with her colleagues in the Office the University Registrar.

"I’m excited to complement the already existing commitment and dedication to students and help to enhance their overall experience on campus as the new associate registrar," Olmo said. "And I’m thrilled to be part of an institution that is a drum major for diversity, engagement, access and cutting-edge technology."

Olmo earned a master's degree in adult learning and workforce education from Northcentral University in Prescott Valley, Arizona; a master’s degree in higher education college administration and leadership from Purdue Global University in Chicago; and a bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership from Roosevelt University in Chicago.

Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with the joys of her life: her two adult children, son-in-law and two grandchildren. She loves cooking, gardening, fishing, serving the community and mentoring young adults.
