Bowie State Search Committee to Hold Open Meeting

The Bowie State University Presidential Search and Screening Committee will hold an open meeting on Friday, October 8. The meeting will be held on the campus, located at 14000 Jericho Park Road, in the Thurgood Marshall Library auditorium. It will begin at noon and is expected to end at 2 PM. The committee is expected to schedule at least one other open meeting.

Friday’s forum will provide an opportunity for faculty, staff, students, and others to offer their thoughts on the qualities and qualifications that would be desirable in the university’s next president.

The Search and Screening Committee was appointed by USM Chancellor Donald N. Langenberg. Walter Jewell Leonard, Elkins Professor of History and Government at Bowie State, is the chairman. The committee has retained the firm of A.T. Kearney, Inc. to assist in the national search for the university’s ninth president.
