Bowie State University: Economic Development Plan
The Civic Group (formerly CLD Partners) was engaged by Bowie State University along with Margrave Strategies to develop a comprehensive economic development strategy that lays the foundation to grow the university’s influence and role as an economic generator in the county and region.
The plan provides recommendations and strategies over a five-year horizon to address development around four major themes: placemaking, community, growth and innovation. The themes represent historical areas of focus for BSU that provide opportunity to maximize momentum for continued success and viability into the future.
“The activities recommended in this plan will help strengthen Bowie State’s connection to the larger economic ecosystem throughout the region by building stronger partnership with business, industry and government,” said President Aminta Breaux. “As a public university and the first HBCU in the state of Maryland, it has always been part of our mission to strengthen communities to support the public good.”
