Legendary Musician, Nick Bowman, Honored at ASHE

The National Forum proudly recognizes the achievements of Legendary Musician, Nick Bowman.  Nick was presented the ASHE Promising Scholar/Early Career Award at the 2012 ASHE Conference.  Congratulations, Nick!

What is the ASHE Promising Scholar/Early Career Award?

The award recognizes a significant body of scholarship, a single extraordinary research achievement by a higher education scholar, or a potential for future research.  The Early Career Award, called the Promising Scholar Award in 1989 and 1990, is reserved for individuals who are no more than six years beyond the receipt of the doctoral degree

What was the basis of your presentation at the ASHE Conference?

I gave two presentations at ASHE this year — the first examined the curvilinear relationship between college diversity interactions and student outcomes, and the second explored the link between various college experiences and prosocial behaviors, attitudes, and self-perceptions.

What do you do now? 

I’m an assistant professor of higher education and student affairs at Bowling Green State University.

What was your focus at the National Forum and how did your work here influence your career and the work you do today?

At the Forum, I worked primarily on research and assessment for the Access to Democracy project. I also co-edited the Rising Scholars monographs and book.  Today, most of my research still examines some aspect of the “public good,” including the educational outcomes of diversity engagement as well as the experiences and outcomes of religious minority students.  Through my various involvements at the Forum, I bolstered my research, assessment, and grant-writing skills.
