Mission Statement Bowie State University, through the effective and efficient management of its resources, provides high-quality and affordable educational opportunities at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels for a diverse student population of Maryland citizens and the global community. The educational programs are designed to broaden the knowledge base and skill set of students across disciplines and to enable students to think critically, value diversity, become effective leaders, function competently in a highly technical world, and pursue advanced graduate study. The University is committed to increasing the number of students from underrepresented minorities who earn advanced degrees in computer science, mathematics, information technology, and education. Constituent needs, market demands, and emerging challenges confronting socioeconomic cultures serve as important bases in the University's efforts to develop educational programs and improve student access to instruction. 2 | B o w i e s t a t e u n i v e r s i t y 2 0 0 9 A n n u al R e p o rt

Financial Review The nation’s and the state of Maryland’s fiscal condition presented many financial challenges for all of higher education. However, we are pleased to report that with the support and input from all members of Bowie State’s campus community, we persevered through the economic challenges of FY 2009. Last year the University continued to realign its resources to address institutional priorities and fulfill our dual mission. Moreover, we received good audits (unqualified audit of 2008 Financial Statement). Although the financial audit for FY 2009 is still in progress, we feel the preliminary information presented below is an indication of the University’s efforts to strengthen the financial vitality of the University and continue to be a good investment for the state and an asset to the University System of Maryland.
