Baltimore, MD. (Dec. 9, 2020)—The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents has appointed Dr. Gregory Fowler as the next president of University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC). Fowler, currently the president of Southern New Hampshire University Global Campus, will begin his tenure as UMGC president on January 4.
Fowler has served as president of Southern New Hampshire University's (SNHU) Global Campus since September 2018. He first joined the institution eight years ago in a dual role as chief academic officer and vice president for academic affairs.
"The board has identified an outstanding leader to move UMGC forward," Board of Regents Chair Linda Gooden said. "Given that UMGC is the nation's largest online public university and serves a broad diversity of students, the selection of UMGC's next president has been critically important to the university and to the USM. Dr. Fowler's extensive leadership experience in adult and distance education is an ideal fit for leading UMGC."
