Brown University has named Logan Powell as their next dean of admission effective July 1, 2016. Powell is currently the director of admission at Princeton University. 

“I am tremendously honored and humbled to serve as Brown’s next dean of admission. Brown is a remarkably collaborative and vibrant institution, and I look forward to joining a dynamic community of scholars, students and alumni. In the spirit of partnership, I seek to work with colleagues from around the University to enroll students who will continue to represent a great depth of intellectual curiosity and diversity of thought," said Powell. 

Powell will succeed current Dean of Admission James Miller, a 1973 Brown graduate who joined the university in 2005 and announced plans to retire earlier this year. 

“The dean of admission is a critically important position in the University’s efforts to advance academic excellence. Dean Powell will serve as a strategic leader, responsible for ensuring that Brown continues to attract and support the most talented, creative, intellectually independent, driven and diverse students from across the nation and around the globe," said Provost Richard Locke. 

As Brown's dean of admission, Powell will oversee a staff of 38, including 19 admission officers and will also be responsible for the identification, recruitment and selection of all undergraduates seeking entrance to Brown.

Prior to Princeton, Powell, worked as a senior associate dean of admission at Bowdoin College and senior admissions officer at Harvard. 

Powell earned his master's in education from Harvard, with an emphasis in higher education, and a bachelor of arts from Bowdoin.
