William “Will” Webb

Chief Growth Officer and Senior Vice President/Dean of the Palmer College of Professional Studies
Will Webb

Webb most recently served as assistant vice president for digital learning at Northeastern University in Boston, where he managed a large portfolio of programs for non-traditional learners, and as part of a team of executives, developed key educational partnerships with Fortune 100 and 500 companies, and more. At MBU, he works closely with the university board of trustees, executive staff, college deans, faculty, and staff to drive the expansion and enhancement of the university’s online learning programs.

Webb brings to MBU a passion for supporting students with a holistic support system, based on understanding the many ways that people pursue higher education today. MBU administrators see Webb’s comprehensive approach to understanding the needs of today’s students and tailoring the university’s learning resources to support those needs as the key to creating successful, personalized learning in this new era.

“It’s more than taking students from one point to another and meeting them where they are, it’s about taking a 360-degree view. Everyone’s path is different, so it’s critical to support students in all circumstances — to create both a holistic experience and a suite of services that allow them to meet their goals.”
