Crain’s New York Business has named Will Moya, Vice President, Student Finance and Institutional Effectiveness, Berkeley College, on its list of 2022 Notable Hispanic Leaders. The award recognizes 78 professionals from across New York City’s business community for their professional accomplishments and their records of powering change. Moya is a resident of Yorktown, NY. 

“Hispanic New Yorkers, spread as they are across the city’s five boroughs, have made countless contributions that are now embedded in the city’s cultural landscape,” wrote Crain’s. “These impressive individuals drive a diverse city to new and exciting possibilities.” 

With 21 years of experience in higher education and historic knowledge of Berkeley College as a student, alumnus, and administrator, Moya’s recent endeavors have focused on elevating the student experience. In 2021, he introduced a Student Success Coaching program – a one-stop-shop for student services. He also played an integral role in bringing a Food Pantry to Berkeley College’s Midtown Manhattan campus, a collaboration with the Food Bank for New York City to address food insecurity among students. 

“I come from the same background as many of our students,” said Moya, a first-generation college student. “When I sit across from these young men and women – I know how hard it is for them. We share the same story.” 

Throughout his tenure, Moya has helped students navigate higher education and find meaningful careers. He began his career at Berkeley College in 2002, and has held positions in Academic Advisement and Student Records, Academic Affairs, Records Management, Institutional Advancement, Financial Aid, and Campus Operations. In 2017 Moya received the Educational Excellence Award from the NYC Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, recognizing his work in empowering the Latino community. 

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 to October 15.
