Joy Levy, corresponding secretary for the Village Improvement Association (VIA) of Doylestown, was recently named to Delaware Valley University’s Board of Trustees. 

“We are pleased to welcome Joy to the Delaware Valley University Board of Trustees,” said DelVal President Dr. Maria Gallo. “Joy’s strong history of community involvement and her experience in community engagement, events, marketing, and fundraising will help the University enhance the student experience. I look forward to working with her as we begin implementing the University’s strategic plan.”

In her current role with the VIA, Levy serves on the Executive Committee of the VIA Board of Directors. Founded in 1895 to support and enhance the quality of life in Central Bucks, the VIA opened Doylestown Hospital in 1923 and continues to oversee the governance of Doylestown Health to this day.

Levy has served on the Bucks County Designer House & Gardens (BCDHG) Committee for several years. The BCDHG is the VIA’s largest fundraiser, drawing more than 7,000 visitors annually and raising more than $4 million since 1971. Levy chaired the BCDHG in both 2007 and 2016 and served as vice chair in 2015.

“I am honored to join the Board of Trustees of Delaware Valley University,” said Levy. “This opportunity, along with my involvement in the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown and Friends of the Heart Institute of Doylestown Health, enables me to focus on the needs and interests of the community in new and exciting ways.”

Levy spent the majority of her career (1979-2001) as a district manager with AT&T. 

Levy grew up in Brooklyn, New York. She earned her B.S. in computer science and economics from the City University of New York – Brooklyn College in 1979. She also earned a master’s certificate in project management from The George Washington University.
