Stockton University has grown its board of trustees to 15 members, with four new trustees including Choose New Jersey head Jose Lozano, it announced Thursday.

The board expanded from 12 to 15 members, the Galloway-based university said in a news release, adding Lozano, the CEO and president of the economic development organization; the Rev. Collins A. Days of Second Baptist Church in Atlantic City; Sonia Gonsalves, an emerita faculty member; and Michelle Lenzmeier Keates, an executive with Janney Montgomery Scott LLC.
