Office of the President


Dr. Mike Bower
Mike Bower, Ph.D.

Like many of you, I am here to learn, discover and experience life at Owens Community College. As Owens' sixth president, I am learning about the diversity of our students, their interests and educational goals. The College's vision strengthens our communities, while our exceptional faculty with support from our professional staff, provide superior educational experiences. At Owens, students learn with emerging technologies, innovative instruction, quality programs and community service.

Our students discover that there are many pathways that lead to their success. As a learning president and a teacher of learning, I am dedicated to supporting students, from their readiness and success at Owens, to their advancement and transfer to universities or preparedness and placement in the global job market.

I welcome the Owens Community College experience, and I look forward to serving you so that we may collaborate with our educational, industry and community partners to raise and leverage resources for education and workforce training. Together, our shared sense of purpose is to improve lives and to enrich our communities, which we do through the success of our graduates and students.

"We believe in serving our students and our communities.
Your success is our mission."

Mike Bower, Ph.D.
