Southern Illinois University President Glenn Poshard today introduced Julie A. Furst-Bowe (BO-vee) as the eighth chancellor in Southern Illinois University Edwardsville's history. The announcement was made in the Morris University Center's Meridian Ballroom. The selection is pending formal SIU Board of Trustees' approval at its May 10 meeting, and Bowe would officially assume her duties July 2.

"Dr. Furst-Bowe has the right combination of skills and experience to continue the momentum that SIUE has built during the past decade," Poshard said. "I am confident that she will bring the required leadership necessary to keep this growing campus community moving in a positive direction."

Furst-Bowe succeeds Dr. Vaughn Vandegrift, who is retiring effective July 1, after highly successful eight-year tenure. Search Advisory Committee Chairman John Navin, Ph.D., a professor of economics and finance in the SIUE School of Business, led the 16-person committee through the four-month national search that began with 37 candidates. The committee was comprised of faculty, staff, students and alumni. SIU System Vice President for Academic Affairs Paul Sarvela assisted the search committee in representing the president in the search.

"I want to compliment the search committee on their dedication to the task of selecting a new chancellor who fits SIUE's mission, vision and values," Navin said. "We had an impressive candidate pool that was fully vetted, and the committee proved their commitment to excellence with the recommendation of Julie Furst-Bowe."
