Robert L. Bogomolny took on the role of president of the University of Baltimore on August 1, 2002. A Harvard College and Harvard Law School graduate, Bogomolny draws upon a background that spans the academic, legal and corporate worlds.

Bogomolny came to UB from G.D. Searle & Company, where he served as corporate senior vice president and general counsel from 1987 to 2001. While at Searle, at various times, he directed the companys legal, regulatory, quality control and public affairs activities. Bogomolny also led Searle's government affairs department in Washington, D.C., and served on the Searle Executive Management Committee.

Bogomolny previously served as professor of law and dean of the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University from 1977 to 1987, and also as professor of law at Southern Methodist University School of Law for seven years.

Since his arrival at UB, Bogomolny has had a significant impact on the University and its community. Recognizing both the states growing college-ready population and UBs capacity for more students, he led an extensive effort to welcome freshmen to the campus for the first time in decades. At the same time, Bogomolny invested in the Universitys physical infrastructure by remodeling the historic Liberal Arts and Policy Building as a state-of-the-art facility for teaching and research, by working with development partners to create the Fitzgerald at UB Midtown residential/retail complex and, most recently, by leading the effort to build the new John and Frances Angelos Law Center. Since its April 2013 opening, the law center has already become a landmark of sustainable construction and modern legal education.

Other major improvements to the campus during Bogomolnys tenure include an ongoing streetscape program and dedicated signage to distinguish the UB footprint, the opening of the UB Student Center and the establishment of new majors and specializations in real estate and economic development, sustainability, simulation and digital entertainment, global affairs and human security and other in-demand areas. He also played an active role in the development of the Universitys rebranding initiative, which ultimately resulted in a striking new UB logo, colors and tagline (Knowledge That Works).

His current efforts include enhancing the Universitys programmatic offerings for and support of veterans, revitalizing the former law building for administrative and classroom use and embarking on a major renovation of the Langsdale Library.
