Boyd earned her B.S. from Alabama State University with a major in mathematics and a double minor in physics and music. She received a fellowship and was the first African-American female to earn an M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Yale University. She has earned both the M. Div. D. Min. Degrees from Howard University. Boyd's professional career of more than three decades at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics laboratory was highlighted by exemplary leadership and dedicated services as part of engineering teams. Boyd was a direct report to the President of Johns Hopkins University serving as chair of the Johns Hopkins Diversity Leadership Council from 2001-2014. Boyd returned to her alma mater in 2014 and for three years she serves as the 14th and first female president of ASU. Highlights of her presidency included getting the university its very first engineering degree program with approval for a BS in biomedical engineering. Boyd and her team got the univesity removed from SACSCOC warning status from previous financial instability. The largest freshman class was documented during her tenure. Boyd is a nationally recognized champion of education, especially as it relates to STEM disciplines. Boyd was nominated by President Barack Obama and received U.S. Senate confirmation to serve as a trustee to the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation in 2009 and later served on the President's Advisory Commission on Education Excellence for African Americans in 2014. Rev.

Known as the "Technology President", Boyd helped to establish technology in all facets of the sorority's activities and administration. her four-year tenure as president included a number of transformative accomplishments, including the launching of Project SEE (Science in Every Experience), an initiative funded by a $1.6 million National Science Foundation grant with a goal of promoting math and science for middle school African-American girls. She also led the sorority's humanitarian and education advocacy efforts in various parts of Africa, including Swaziland, Lesotho and Soweto, South Africa.

Boyd Day in eight cities; leadership awards, and professional awards, and professional awards for her achievements in the fields of engineering and higher education.

To be clear, Alabama State University President Gwendolyn Boyd needs no saving.
Even if she is the absolute wrong choice to lead her alma mater, if she is the spending-happy, back talking president some former and current members of the ASU Board of Trustees have made her out to be, two things remain clear about their relationship: They picked her, and she doesn't need them or the job to cap an already remarkable life and career. But at some point, there has to be a reckoning for the way the board has mishandled its communication and oversight of Dr. Boyd, and the public turmoil and potential damage it has caused for the university. Obviously, the board's dysfunction and malfeasance far precedes her tenure, but Boyd as an alumnus and history-making president deserves more because her presidency should mean more. It should mean more for the board in preserving her leadership for the long-term, and it should mean more to the students and alumni just looking for Alabama State to be above national controversy for more than a month at a time. But most of all, it should mean more to Dr. Boyd's core of support, a sisterhood that has transcended leadership, political influence and social capital for decades, and should consider using the might of its power to influence the direction of the ASU Board on behalf of its former national president. Dr. Boyd is credentialed enough and astute enough to do fine in the presidency, were the board not so willfully malicious and historically inept. But given those circumstances, it takes a unique kind of advocacy to keep Boyd out of harm's way and in the HBCU circle of leadership. Whatever the reason, Dr. Boyd is seemingly a woman on an island in Montgomery. And with more than 300,000 women around the world she can call upon as 'soror,' that should definitely not be the case. Dr. Boyd didn't come to exorcise the board, but to right the way for Alabama State to reemerge as a national institution of value to Black America.
