Professor Boyle has taught at Pitzer since 1992.  A comparative political scientist, his research has focused on the political determinants of social inequality, most recently regarding welfare-to-work policy.  As a teacher/mentor at Pitzer he has been active in working with students applying for prestigious fellowships.  He held the Peter and Gloria Gold Chair at Pitzer 2007-12 and in 2012 he was chosen in a national search to be founding Director of I-GLAS, a position which includes an endowed chair and serving as Associate Dean of Faculty for Global and Local Programs.  In the last three years he has folded the fellowships office into his portfolio and developed the Global Local Mentorship Project, the Junior Faculty Development Seminar, the Pitzer Prison Education Initiative, and a set of foreign language initiatives and short-term study abroad programs with a strong focus on community engagement and training students to be effective educators and researchers locally and globally.  He has helped secure seven outside funding awards for these initiatives.  In 2015 Nigel has received three notable honors: the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board recognized him as the top Fulbright advisor, the Pitzer class of 2015 elected him as a student marshal for Commencement, and he became President of Aston Villa Football Club, Upper Prison, Luzira, Uganda.
