Anthony Savia Named Vice President for Administration and Finance

I am very pleased to announce that Anthony Savia has been named the new vice president of administration and finance at Bowie State University.

 Mr. Savia will assume the role of Bowie State’s chief financial officer on Sept. 4, 2018. He will be responsible for ensuring that the university maintains ethical administrative, financial and business practices, as well as overseeing the offices of budget and finance, human resources, facilities management, controller, and student accounts, among others. He will also lead the university’s master planning process, capital improvement program, and climate commitment and sustainability initiatives.

Mr. Savia will provide his expertise and leadership to this important division at BSU. He brings a wealth of knowledge to further advance the Racing to Excellence vision.

He comes to Bowie State after serving more than 30 years in administration and finance at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD). Most recently as assistant dean of finance and administration for the School of Public Policy, he helped develop and implement a program to construct the school’s new public policy building.

His other previous roles at UMD include: director of admissions for the School of Public Policy; director of finance, administration and education technology services in the College of Education; and acting deputy assistant director of financial services, architecture, engineering, and construction.

“I am very excited to join the Bowie State Bulldog family. There is a sense of community on the campus that makes everyone feel so welcome,” said Savia. “It is a terrific honor to be a part of President Breaux’s Racing to Excellence vision.”

Mr. Savia holds a master’s degree in management and a bachelor’s degree in business and management from the University of Maryland University College.

I want to thank the search committee, chaired by Dr. Marsha Jackson, for their service. I would also like to thank Michael Atkins for his leadership as interim vice president for administration and finance.

Please join me in welcoming Mr. Savia to the Bowie State University community.
