Greg Royce was named SNHU's Director of Athletics Communications in August, 2007.  He is responsible for the promotion and publicity efforts for 19 Penmen varsity teams, as well as maintenance of the SNHU athletics website and oversight of the athletic department’s social media and webcasting efforts.

During Royce’s tenure, SNHU athletics has debuted a new website (www.snhupenmen.com) which receives over 1.5 million visits annually and has since gone through two redesigns, and improved webcasting efforts with the debut of www.snhupenmen.tv, which webcasts Penmen games in near-HD quality at no cost to viewers.  Southern New Hampshire’s social media efforts have been near the top of the Northeast-10 Conference, with SNHU athletics having nearly 3,300 Twitter followers and over 2,500 Facebook fans as of the summer of 2015.  SNHU has played host to a number of NCAA and Northeast-10 Championship events over Royce’s eight seasons, and several interns and student employees have gone on to careers in the athletics communications field following graduation.

In the summer of 2015, Royce was named the East Region representative to the D2SIDA board, an organization that represents over 300 athletics communications professionals at the NCAA Division II level.  He also begins his first year as a member of the NCAA field hockey Regional Advisory Committee, which advises the NCAA Division II Field Hockey Committee on selections to the field hockey championship from the North region.

Royce is a 2000 graduate of SNHU with a degree in Sport Management.  While an undergraduate at then-New Hampshire College, Royce assisted former SNHU sports information director Tom McDermott in the sports information office for three years. 

Prior to his arrival at SNHU, Royce served as sports information director at fellow Northeast-10 Conference member American International College.  At AIC, he was responsible for the promotion and publicity of 22 varsity programs, including Division I ice hockey and the 2006 women's basketball team that advanced to the NCAA Division II championship game.  He also served as the host SID for the 2006 and 2007 Division II men's basketball "Elite Eight" hosted by AIC and completely redesigned the AIC athletics website.

From 2000-03 Royce worked in the Athletic Media Relations office at the University of New Hampshire, working with all 24 of UNH's sports while serving as the primary contact for women's basketball, men's soccer, track and field and gymnastics.

A member of both CoSIDA and ECAC-SIDA, Royce served as the local organizing committee chairperson for the 2013 ECAC-SIDA Workshop held in Manchester.   He also serves as an official scorer for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays.  He served as the scorer of the Eastern League All-Star Game in 2008 and 2011, and has also worked as a fill-in official scorer with the Lowell Spinners, a Boston Red Sox affiliate.
