Bob Boyer, senior director of Liberty University Postal Services (LUPS), has been nominated to the board of the National Association of College and University Mail Services (NACUMS). Boyer, who has worked at the university for seven years, currently directs fulfillment, postal services, print services, and warehousing for Liberty.
Board members serve for two-year cycles. The purpose of the eight-member board is to establish a communication channel for colleges and universities to share ideas with the United States Postal Service, Postal Regulatory Commission, or others to ensure the best interests of the mailing industry. Other colleges represented on the board include Auburn University, Lipscomb University, Middle Tennessee State, Youngstown State, the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill), and the University of San Diego.
LUPS serves nearly 300 university departments, more than 8,000 faculty and staff, and more than 6,500 students. It also offers domestic and international shipping options at a reduced rate. In the last seven years, LUPS has updated its mailing and tracking systems and acquired a robotic sorting device.
“These upgrades have allowed us to keep up with the growth and changes that Liberty has experienced with minimal impact to our customers and staff,” Boyer said. “Our staff is professional, fun, knowledgeable of industry changes, and most of all, a great representation of the mission of Liberty University.”
