Jayson Matlock - MPA, FAAC ®
Deputy Chief Financial Aid Director, Admissions, Financial Aid and Scholarships @ SUU
Jayson is a passionate Financial Aid Administrator who has worked in the field for 12 years. As a first-generation college student, he focuses on building connections and channels for advocacy to elevate the student experience. He has had the opportunity to participate in various committees that emphasize the importance of fortifying EDI efforts, improving employee retention and morale, and creating unique opportunities for advocacy to thrive. These opportunities have come institutionally, and through participation in UASFAA, RMASFAA, and NASFAA at crucial times.
In his career he has found fulfillment in the ability to foster authentic connections that can create generational change in student lives, and to create space for staff and student voices to be heard.
