In 2015, Bowie State University will celebrate its 150-year history of providing academic excellence and access to education.

The yearlong focus will mark Bowie State University’s significant impact in the state of Maryland. The University evolved from a normal school teaching the elements of education to the state’s Black citizens denied access to state-funded schools immediately following the abolition of slavery. Today, it is a comprehensive liberal arts university that offers a holistic, nurturing learning experience for students and prepares them to make positive contributions to the community.
