Dr. Drew Bogner assumed the presidency of Molloy College in Rockville Centre, New York in July 2000. Under Dr. Bogner’s 18 years of transformational leadership, Molloy College has reframed itself from a predominantly baccalaureate undergraduate institution into a comprehensive, graduate-granting institution, adding numerous Masters’ programs and three doctoral programs. Dr. Bogner is also credited for increasing the College’s enrollment from 2,200 to approximately 4,900 students. The College's reputation for quality has continued to increase, resulting in national recognition from a number of well-known ranking organizations. Molloy was recently named the #18 school in the country for “added value” by The Wall Street Journal, joining a list that includes Harvard, Duke, Yale, Georgetown University and the University of Notre Dame. Molloy also earned a spot on Money magazine’s list of the Best Transformative Colleges in the nation. Prior to that, the College spent two consecutive years as a Money Top Three “Best Value” national ranking, the only institution in the country to earn that honor. In recent years, Molloy was also named a Top Ten “Best Value” college by College Values Online. The College has also been highly rated in other national rankings, including Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report.
Molloy College has made major enhancements to its campus over the past 15 years, including the opening of the Barbara H. Hagan School of Nursing and The Public Square student center (which houses the Madison Theatre), the addition of two residence halls (a third will open in Fall ’19) and a trading room for the Division of Business. The College continues to support the Long Island community through the additions of a Speech, Language and Hearing Center and The Rebecca Center for Music Therapy.
Dr. Bogner serves on numerous boards including the Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation, LIRACHE (Long Island Regional Advisory Council on Higher Education), the Long Island Association, the Long Island Superintendents-College Presidents Partnership (S-CPP), the Boy Scouts of America - Theodore Roosevelt Council and on the advisory committee for the LIRR Third Track. Dr. Bogner is a member of the Long Island Stem Hub Steering Committee, a member of LHVCCC (Lower Hudson Valley Catholic College & University Consortium), serves on the ECC (East Coast Conference) and has also served as Chair of the NCAA Division II President’s Council and as a member of the NCAA Executive Committee.
Dr. Bogner earned a B.S. in Biology and a B.S. in History from Kansas Newman College. He later went on to receive his M.S. Ed. and Ph.D. from the University of Kansas School of Education in Lawrence, Kansas.
