Bowen Center for Public Affairs

The Bowen Center for Public Affairs was founded in 2007 to honor the integrity and leadership of Dr. Otis R. Bowen, Indiana’s 44th governor and 16th secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under President Ronald Reagan.

 

By supporting the Bowen Center for Public Affairs you make an investment in a critical Indiana resource that empowers Hoosiers to make a difference and inspires civic literacy and public service. The nationally-recognized center, housed at Ball State University, also conducts a range of nonpartisan government research that informs decision makers and promotes thoughtful dialogue and collaborative solutions to help communities thrive.

 

Every year nominees from around the state are invited to attend the Bowen Institute on Political Participation, a weekend session that deepens participants’ understanding of politics and political management. Leaders from civic organizations, business, and education come together to share and gain insight into topics, including political activism, campaign techniques, and ethics.

 

The Institute for Policy Research conducts university-based, nonpartisan research to assess significant political, social, and economic issues.

 

The Certified Public Manager® Program (CPM) is the state’s only nationally-accredited management and leadership program specifically designed for public sector managers. We empower public officials to be stronger and more effective supervisors and leaders.

 

We need your support to continue this meaningful work that offers objective guidance about public policy issues, trains public officials in the latest management techniques, engages citizens in the political process and promotes community dialogue.
