TOWSON, Md. (AP) - Jazz musician, educator and author Jose Antonio Bowen will become the 11th president of Goucher College, a private, liberal arts institution north of Baltimore.

Bowen succeeds Sanford Ungar, who will step down on June 30 after 13 years on the job.

Bowen’s appointment, effective July 1, was announced Wednesday by Goucher’s board of trustees. He’s currently a music professor at Southern Methodist University and the dean of its arts school.

In his 35 years as a jazz musician, Bowen has shared a stage with performers including Dizzy Gillespie, Bobby McFerrin, Dave Brubeck and Liberace.

He says in a statement that Goucher “is a paragon of the liberal arts and sciences tradition” and a place that has embraced new ideas, such as its requirement that all students study abroad.
