Logan Powell, current University director of admission, will serve as the dean of admission at Brown beginning on July 1, 2016.
Powell will assume the office of current Brown Dean of Admission James Miller, who will retire this year.
In addition to overseeing admissions, in his new capacity Powell will represent Brown at a number of professional conferences and committees, including the Consortium on Financing Higher Education Admissions Deans’ Committee, The College Board and the Ivy League Deans of Admission.
In an interview with the Office of Communications at Brown, Powell noted that he will work with the Brown community to “represent a great depth of intellectual curiosity and diversity of thought” among its enrolled students.
University Dean of Admission Janet Rapelye said that she and her office are proud of Logan’s appointment at Brown.
“His professionalism, wisdom and talents were evident in all he accomplished at Princeton as our director of admission. We congratulate Logan on his new leadership role in higher education; Brown is fortunate to be getting him for this important work,” she said.
As Director of Admission at the University, Powell has led strategic planning regarding issues such as early action and standardized testing requirements, according to Brown’s press release. Powell has also served on the Education Access Committee, an organization dedicated to improving opportunities for low-income and first-generation students at the University. He also worked with the University’s athletic department and served as an adviser to student athletes.
