Portales, NM – November 29, 2023 – Chancellor James Johnston announced today that Warren Lloyd, a veteran higher education advancement professional, has been hired as the university's first Vice-President for Advancement and Public Relations.
"I am looking forward to working with Mr. Lloyd to build on what we have here and to enter a new era of fundraising and support for all the great work here at ENMU," said James Johnston, ENMU Chancellor. "I believe he is the right fit and the right person, and I am delighted he is joining the Greyhound family."
Lloyd comes to Eastern New Mexico University from Colorado College, where he is serving as the Associate Vice President for Development. In his time there, he led four teams to surpass the FY 2023 fundraising goal of 20 million, raising just under $900K individually in his first eight months on the job.
Before Colorado College, Lloyd was the Executive Director of Advancement for the College of Arts and Science at the University at Buffalo, the largest of thirteen academic units. In his time there, he helped to lead the Boldly Buffalo campaign, positioning the college to surpass an 88-million-dollar campaign goal.
Throughout Lloyd's 16-year career, he was the Director of Major Gifts for Penn State Behrend in Erie, PA, a Regional Director of Advancement for the University of Rochester and held several development positions at the University at Buffalo.
"I am filled with humility and excitement to help usher ENMU into its next growth phase. As a non-traditional student who entered community college somewhat late in life, I have always been passionate about providing access and opportunity for students and families who might not otherwise be able to attend a world-class university such as ENMU," said Warren Lloyd, new ENMU Vice-President for Advancement and Public Relations. "The more I learned about ENMU's deep engagement with the Southeastern New Mexico region and its tremendous impact on the lives of students and their families, I knew I wanted to join the Greyhound family. I am honored and privileged by the opportunity to work with Chancellor James Johnston to help him achieve his innovative vision for the future of ENMU."
Lloyd has a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Pratt Institute.
Lloyd will begin his tenure with ENMU on January 8, 2024.
