Submitted by Faith-Anne Dohm on July 28, 2010

Christen Pollock, a graduate of Fairfield University’s Applied Psychology program, has been appointed as Vice President, Advocacy at the College Board. Christen earned her Master of Arts in Applied Psychology (Foundations of Advanced Psychology) from Fairfield in 2004.

The announcement from the College Board states that, “Christen will manage the advocacy work of the College Board, co-lead the new Advocacy & Policy Center, and help shape the agenda of the Advocacy, Government Relations and Development Division. She will implement a strategic plan for the Advocacy & Policy Center that focuses on influencing public policy and institutional practice in college and career readiness, college access and admission, college affordability and student aid, and college completion.

“Christen came to the College Board five and a half years ago. Prior to joining the Advocacy, Government Relations and Development Division, she worked in the Research and Development unit as part of the team that helped formulate the long-term strategy for AP enhancement and expansion. She brings extensive experience from the private sector in the areas of marketing, communications, research, and policy, which I have seen her apply to her advocacy work.”
