William Boozang New Director of Adult and Graduate Studies

RSS FeedEastern Nazarene College is pleased to announce the appointment of William Boozang as the new director of Adult and Graduate Studies, beginning August 15, 2008.

"I am looking forward to playing a key role in Adult and Graduate Studies, as the faculty and staff have a reputation of delivering excellent degree programs," said Boozang. "However, I will miss the Center for Academic Services and our ‘regulars.’ The CAS is a vibrant learning community which will continue to grow as a welcoming place for all students."

Boozang is well known around campus for his extraordinary work in the Center for Academic Services, where he has brought the level of academic support for students to unprecedented levels. His willingness and ability to get involved in students’ day-to-day lives has contributed to significant improvements in student retention across campus. We are excited to see what growth will result from the application of his energy and enthusiasm to our Adult Studies and Graduate programs.

In addition to his work at CAS, Boozang has served as the coordinator of the Freshman Writing Program and an English professor, where he taught many incoming freshmen in classes such as Rhetoric and Critical Writing. He received the 2006 Eastern Nazarene College Administrative Faculty Excellence Award. Prior to coming to ENC, Boozang was an adjunct professor at Bay Path College and Quincy College, and an English teacher at several high schools in Hanover, Walpole, Quincy, and Cambridge. In these roles, in addition to his teaching responsibilities, he was advisor to classes, a conflict resolution team member, worked with alumni, and created standard curriculum. He received the 2004 Patriot Ledger Excellence in Teaching Award.

Boozang has a Bachelor of Arts in English from Saint Anselm College, a Master of Arts in English Literature from Rivier College, a Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration from Eastern Nazarene College, and is currently working on a Doctorate of Education in Leadership and Learning from Rivier College. He’s a member of the National Association of Developmental Education and the Learning Assistance Association of New England.
