Bowman among 2014 H.S. Warwick Research Award winners

September 4, 2014

Nelson Bowman, executive director of development at PVAMU, believes cultivating an environment of philanthropy through the engagement of alumni is vital to the success of any collegiate fundraising campaign. His work in this area has received recognition by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

Bowman recently received the H.S. Warwick Research Award for his book, “Engaging Diverse College Alumni: the Essential Guide to Fundraising,” which is co-authored by Dr. Marybeth Gasman, Director of the Center for Minority-Serving Institutions at Penn Graduate School of Education. The book provides a comprehensive approach to fundraising, comprised of quantitative data, interviews and best practices for both newcomers and seasoned fundraising professionals.

H.S. Warwick Research Award winners must demonstrate scholarly research. In addition, the research should be a source of knowledge to educational advancement practitioners in the field of alumni relations. Bowman’s book will be used as a part of the curriculum in LeadershipPVAMU, a new program designed to hone leadership skills in employee participants.
