Drew Bogner's Biography

Dr. Drew Bogner assumed the presidency of Molloy College in Rockville Centre, New York in July 2000. Under Dr. Bogner's 20 years of transformational leadership, Molloy College has reframed itself from a predominantly Dr. Drew Bognerbaccalaureate undergraduate institution into a comprehensive, graduate-degree 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. During his tenure, Molloy College has doubled the size of its facilities, completing six new buildings in the last ten years adding educational centers in Manhattan and Suffolk County.

Molloy was recently named the #18 school in the country for "added value" by The Wall Street Journal and spent two consecutive years as a Money Top Three "Best Value" nationally, the only institution in the country to earn that honor. The 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 three residence halls and a trading room for the Division of Business. The College continues to support the Long Island community in a variety of ways including the Center for Autism and Child Development (CACD), The Rebecca Center for Music Therapy, The Mental Health and Wellness Center and the Molloy College Speech, Language, and Hearing Center.

Dr. Bogner serves on numerous boards, both regionally and nationally. He earned a B.S. in Biology and a B.S. in History from Kansas Newman College and also received an M.S. Ed. and Ph.D. from the University of Kansas School of Education. In April of 2019, Dr. Bogner announced that he will be retiring effective June 30, 2020.
