2019 Board Nominations


Robert Nitsos, Loyola Marymount University

Associate Registrar, Student Records Systems


I've been at Loyola Marymount University for over 20 years, currently serving as Associate Registrar for Student Records Systems. A key component of my duties includes supporting Banner; not just for my office, but for the entire Enrollment Management division. I've been the Chair of our Banner User Group since its inception over 17 years ago and also serve on the Enrollment Management Technology Team and Enterprise Technology Committee. Additionally, I'm one of the Web Tailor Administrators on campus and I've created several custom SSB pages. I’m also our Degree Works coordinator and work with departments across our campus to maintain the accuracy of our degree audits.

Prior to Loyola Marymount University, I worked as a programmer/analyst at a small software company and I have a Computer Science degree from the University of Southern California. My technical background is a great asset in being able to communicate with various campus populations about Banner (and other IT) issues.

I've attended and presented at CoHEsion (and before that, SETA) conferences for many years, serving as Student Track chair several times and Program Chair for the 2009 Portland conference. I’m currently serving on the CoHEsion Board of Directors where I currently hold the position of President. In past years I’ve been the Vendor Liaison and Chair of the Awards committee. I hope that I can continue to serve our great organization as we strive to bring the Banner community together.
