Jeff Boian, M.A., joined the Department of Leadership and Organizational Psychology in June 2011 as a staff member and was promoted in February 2013 to his current administrative faculty role, overseeing new program development and assessment. Boian also teaches courses in the undergraduate leadership minor. His specific areas of interest and teaching are leadership development, organizational change, and career development and vocation. He is also fascinated with the study of behavioral economics, and spends time trafficking in the most current literature available on this topic. Jeff has been affiliated with APU, in various staff and administrative faculty roles, since February 2006. Before coming to APU, he spent several years working in student life at California State University, Chico, and before that spent 5 years serving in various vocational ministry roles. He approaches his work, inside and outside the classroom, with a servant leadership focus and considers the opportunities to serve his students and colleagues as a true privilege and something for which he is extremely grateful.
