Kenyon College

Jeffrey A. Bowman has served as Kenyon’s provost, or chief academic officer, since 2020, and is Kenyon’s acting president until the search for the college’s 20th president is complete. As provost, Bowman has been committed to educational excellence and has provided valuable support to faculty as they met the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. He has played a critical role in shaping and realizing the vision for Kenyon’s next century, advancing key elements of the strategic plan such as the program in computing, nurturing a global curriculum, and continuing to build structures to support students’ success in college and after graduation. Before his appointment as provost, Bowman held progressive positions of leadership within the faculty and administration, including as associate provost and chair of the faculty.
