AMHERST, N.Y. – Dr. Greg Nayor, vice president for student affairs at Daemen College, has been selected by Buffalo Business First as one of this year’s “40 Under 40” honorees.
Awards will be presented to recipients, who are being recognized for their records of professional success and community involvement, at a luncheon celebration scheduled for Dec. 1 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.
“We congratulate Dr. Nayor on receiving this well-deserved regional honor,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “As a valued colleague of our leadership team, he has served our college with distinction and overseen many initiatives that have greatly enhanced the Daemen student life experience.”
More than 160 nominations were received for this year’s “40 Under 40” awards. Recipients were selected by a six-person panel of former winners.
“This is not only a diverse group of recipients but it is one where each of the honorees has made significant contributions toward making the region a better place to live and work,” said Jack Connors, Business First president and publisher.
Nayor joined Daemen in 2014, having previously served as assistant vice president for student affairs and dean of students at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Prior to this, he was dean of student development at Virginia Intermont College in Bristol, Va., and director of residence life at Lynchburg College in Virginia.
Nayor received a doctorate in higher education administration from the University of Virginia, and a master’s degree in education and a bachelor’s degree in history and secondary education, both from SUNY Potsdam.
He resides in Williamsville.
