VP of Public Policy and Federal Relations Megan Coval Announces Departure, NASFAA Begins National Search

After 11 years with NASFAA, Vice President of Public Policy and Federal Relations Megan Coval has accepted the position of executive director of the BC3 Education Foundation and external relations at Butler County Community College, in Butler, Pennsylvania. Megan will be with NASFAA through the end of August.

“For more than a decade, NASFAA member institutions and students have benefited from Megan’s talents, wisdom, and hard work,” said NASFAA President Justin Draeger. “On a more personal note, I’ve long relied on Megan’s expertise and political instincts to help NASFAA navigate the complex world of federal student aid policy. Her humility, charity, and focus on NASFAA’s mission make her unique in a political environment that is replete with ego, political gamesmanship and one-upmanship. As much as I will miss working directly with Megan on a daily basis, I am thrilled for her and her family, as well as her soon-to-be colleagues and the students at Butler County Community College.” 

Today, NASFAA begins its search for our next vice president of policy and federal relations. NASFAA seeks a candidate with significant experience and skills in public policy, advocacy, and management to lead NASFAA’s six-person policy and federal relations team. The person selected will report to NASFAA President Justin Draeger, serve as a senior-level leader, and will be required to operate in a fast-paced environment while managing multiple projects simultaneously. Just as important as these skills, the ideal candidate will demonstrate a commitment to NASFAA’s advocacy principles and contribute to the organization’s team environment and core operating values. For full details, including job description, requirements, duties, and organizational culture, please visit the position description. For full consideration, NASFAA encourages all interested candidates to apply by Aug. 31, 2021.
