Will Moya of Long Island City in Queens, NY, Vice President of Campus Operations, Berkeley College, received the Educational Excellence Award at the 12th annual Hispanic Business Award Banquet and Scholarship Ceremony, hosted by the New York City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (NYCHCC) on December 1, 2017.
The event honored successful businesses, organizations and individuals who have proven their commitment to the Hispanic community, recognizing honorees who advocate for economic development, higher education and promote initiatives that continue to empower the Latino community and beyond. Over the past 11 years, the NYCHCC has awarded more than $140,000 in scholarships to students who attend an accredited university in New York City.
Mr. Moya was appointed Vice President, Operations, Berkeley College, in 2016, where he oversees a team of nine Berkeley College Campus Operating Officers. He also is responsible for Financial Aid operations system-wide.
Prior to this position, Mr. Moya served as Campus Operating Officer of Berkeley College in Midtown Manhattan, NY, where he handled day-to-day operations and collaborated with many departments to ensure that the policies, procedures and goals of the campus and College were met. He also continued to build partnerships with businesses in the community to support the growth of internships, which led to permanent positions for Berkeley College students and graduates.
Since beginning his career at Berkeley College in 2002, Mr. Moya has held positions in Advisement and Student Records, Academic Affairs, Records Management, Institutional Advancement, Financial Aid, and Campus Operations. Mr. Moya received the Berkeley College Associate of the Year Honorable Mention award in 2003 and the Associate of the Year award in 2004, both for Teamwork.
Mr. Moya considers the success of Berkeley’s students his greatest accomplishment as his goal is to help students overcome obstacles that may prevent them from staying on track toward graduation.
“In many respects I come from the same background of many of our students,” said Mr. Moya. “When I sit across from these young men and women – I know what it is like. I know how hard it is for them. I live in the same neighborhoods. We share the same story.”
Growing up in the South Bronx, Mr. Moya never imagining he would attend college. The first in his family to earn a college degree, he has been paying it forward ever since. His support of the New York City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (NYCHCC), and its scholarship program is an example.
