Delaware Valley College has announced the appointment of Art Goon as vice president of enrollment management. Goon has worked in higher education for more than 30 years, most recently at Holy Family University, where he has served as the chief enrollment officer.

“Art brings a high level of expertise and leadership to our enrollment, admission and financial aid teams at a time of extraordinary challenge in higher education,” said College President Dr. Joseph S. Brosnan. “Art’s experience reflects the level of expertise, dedication and skill we were seeking. His strong background in recruitment will serve DelVal well as we move forward.”

With demographic shifts in the marketplace, Goon’s immediate goals will be to implement an enrollment and financial aid strategy as the College moves toward university status. The plan will maximize net tuition revenue and create an optimal composition of a class to include all academic programs. Goon will also play a significant role in the continued implementation of the strategic plan.

"Delaware Valley College is clearly an institution with a broad, visionary and dynamic strategic plan,” Goon said. “I am particularly impressed with its historical commitment to experiential learning in preparing students to meet the challenges of our global society. I am excited about becoming part of such a high-performance campus and eager to advance the mission and vision of the institution."

Prior to his position at Holy Family, Goon served as the vice president of enrollment management at Felician College, where he led the College to new levels of success, increasing freshmen, transfer and international enrollment. He was also responsible for enrollment services at the University of New Haven, Arcadia and Chestnut Hill College.

In addition to his experience in the private sector, Goon has served public institutions, such as the State University of New York at New Paltz.

Goon will begin his new position at DelVal on Monday, October 7.
