A graduate of California Lutheran University, Rowley earned both a B.A. in history and political science and an M.S. in counseling and guidance. He is fluent in Japanese. Before beginning his career in higher education, Rowley served as a U.S. Foreign Commercial intern in Belgium.
Rowley will serve as the chief admissions officer at Augustana, which is a new position. Kent Barnds, vice president for enrollment, communication and planning, will continue to serve as the chief enrollment officer for the college, with Rowley assuming the day-to-day responsibility for leading the college's admissions team.
Barnds believes Augustana has found the ideal candidate for this new position. "Dane has distinguished himself in the field of admissions on a number of levels," Barnds said. "He was highly recommended by the vice president for enrollment at California Lutheran, and he was the top candidate in our search."
