As president, Dr. Bowman has provided strong, collaborative leadership and garnered the trust and respect of students, the faculty, his senior administrative team and the Board of Trustees, infusing transparency into all University operations.
During his tenure, Capital has enjoyed consecutive, multimillion-dollar operating surpluses, record-level giving from an engaged and growing alumni and friend base, historic highs in new and returning student enrollment, and significant reinvestment in improving campus safety and modernizing classrooms, residence halls, and technology. As a result of his emphasis on strategic enrollment management, including his creation of the Division of Planning and Strategy, Capital’s incoming students are more diverse in gender and racial, ethnic and geographicbackground. They’re better prepared academically, and student retention has improved, reversing a three-year trend of decline. Capital also recently completed a comprehensive strategic planning process, spearheaded by Dr. Bowman, charting a new course for a bold and compelling future. Prior to being named interim president, Dr. Bowman served as Capital’s provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, the unanimous choice of the search committee following a national search. He initially joined Capital in the summer of 2003, again as the result of a national search, as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. He remains a full professor and teaches, when time permits, in the Department of History.
