Bowe named interim director of Catawba evening studies program

Catawba College Provost Dr. J. Michael Bitzer named Jeffrey J. Bowe the interim director of Catawba’s School of Evening and Graduate Studies. Bowe, who joined the college in 2012, has been serving as director of the School of Evening and Graduate Studies partnerships and assistant professor of business.
Bowe has been instrumental in creating and maintaining Catawba’s partnership with Central Piedmont Community College, the state’s largest community college. That partnership allows Catawba to offer two bachelor’s degree programs on several of Central Piedmont’s campuses.
One program offers a bachelor of business administration degree for Central Piedmont graduates who earned an associate of applied science degree in business or accounting. Those students are able to earn a bachelor’s degree from Catawba College in just two years.
The second program is a bachelor’s degree in early education with a birth through kindergarten specialty on the Harris campus of Central Piedmont Community College, also allowing completion of the degree in about two years.
Bowe will provide the leadership in the School of Evening and Graduate Studies program after the program’s dean, Dr. Edith Bolick, stepped down to return to the faculty ranks as chair and professor of sociology at Catawba.
Bowe is completing his doctor of business administration degree, with a major in marketing and research emphasis of sales ethics and entrepreneurial marketing, at Anderson University in Indiana. He earned his master of business administration degree from Indiana University with a major in management and minor in finance and his bachelor of arts with honors from DePauw University with double majors in psychology and world religions. He is the author of “Get INFOCUS Get Cash,” a 510-page book on sales tactics, strategy and related communication skills.
“I have over 16 years in adult education, six years as faculty and staff, but much more importantly, over 10 years as an adult student,” Bowe said. “I get that juggling act of work, school and life because I have lived it. Students who did not go straight to college from high school have unique wants and needs, and I look forward to increasing Catawba’s support and service to this growing population.”
Prior to joining Catawba, Bowe served as a tenure-track assistant professor at Eastern Nazarene College, and as an adjunct faculty member at Oakland City University, Anderson University, Capella University and Indiana Wesleyan University. Bowe has 25 years of business experience, including ownership of multiple companies.
