The University of Puget Sound has named Matthew Boyce as its new vice president for enrollment, effective June 8.
Boyce’s background includes serving as an executive director of enrollment management at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. He has also directed a national recruitment program and focused on college access programming for K-12 youth.
Boyce earned a Bachelor of Arts in psychology and philosophy from Villanova University in Pennsylvania, a Master of Education degree in school counseling from Boston University in Massachusetts, and a Ph.D. in education from George Mason University.
“He brings to us a deep commitment to the liberal arts; outstanding research, data analytics, and technical skills; and a deep passion for college access and student success,” said President Isiaah Crawford about Boyce’s preparedness for his new position. His focus is on admissions and enrollment management, with an emphasis on the impact of admissions practices when it comes to underrepresented student populations.
When speaking on his new position with the university Boyce stated, “I was drawn to the opportunity to work at an institution so focused on diversity and inclusion, and with a growing commitment to access — an area in which I have dedicated much of my career both as a practitioner and academic. It is the students, faculty, and staff that make Puget Sound a special place to learn and work, and I am honored to be joining the Logger community.”
