Chris Seng has worked in higher education for 31 years focusing on enrollment management efforts aimed toward student success. At the end of 2021, Chris will retire with “Emeritus” status from Colorado State University. Directing the Office of the Registrar at CSU, Chris led a department of outstanding student-success-focused individuals who teamed with faculty and staff from all departments on campus to implement initiatives to meet undergraduate access, enrollment, and completion goals of the University. Most recently Chris served as project manager for the Colorado State University System office leading a multi-campus initiative to consolidate student information system operations across institutions.
Chris has extensive consulting experience through work with the U.S. Department of Education and several other higher education institutions. He has presented at many state, regional, and national conferences and provided analysis and recommendations to software vendors and colleagues as they develop solutions for campus student administrative ecosystems.
In 2017, Chris and his family enjoyed the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (and now it’s happening again!) to sail with Semester at Sea. Chris served as a member of the voyage leadership team working as the Academic Advisor/Registrar. Chris’ wife Stephanie joined the Global Studies team and their 3 children were all students on the voyage.
