Goolsby Leadership Academy Presents UTA Distinguished Alumnus Theron Bowman, Ph.D.

The junior cohort of the Goolsby Leadership Academy welcomes Dr. Theron L. Bowman, Dr. Theron Bowman deputy city manager of Arlington, retired Arlington chief of police, and UT Arlington distinguished alumnus for a keynote event where he will speak on public service and leadership, two qualities important to the Goolsby Leadership Academy.

Dr. Bowman began his law enforcement career with the Arlington Police Department nearly 25 years ago and served in various positions before being appointed police chief in 1999. Since then he has led Arlington public safety efforts as chief of police during some of the city’s most notable events: the 2010 NBA All-Star game, MLB World Series games and the 2011 NFL Super Bowl XLV. His desire to serve and develop Arlington into a world-class city has led him to his current position of serving as deputy city manager of Arlington. Dr. Bowman is not only making a significant difference in the Arlington community, he also has been appointed by the United States Federal Court as a police monitor, where he monitors the police departments of other states assigned to him.

Dr. Bowman received three degrees from UT Arlington: a bachelor’s degree in biology, a Master of Public Administration degree, and a doctorate in urban and public administration. He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, the FBI National Executive Institute, and the Senior Management Institute for Police. Additionally, he was honored by his alma mater as a distinguished alumnus in 2006.
