Originally from Saskatoon, Mr. Fowler has been engaged with the University of Saskatchewan for nearly 25 years.  He received his Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration and Economics in 1988 and Masters of Business Administration in 1992 from the University of Saskatchewan.  In 1994 he returned to the university as an administrator. 

Mr. Fowler joined the University of Saskatchewan as assistant controller of St. Thomas More College in 1994, and in 1998 became the controller, which included serving as the director of human resources, physical plant, information technology services, Choices Food Services, and ancillary services.  He was in this position until 2006 when he became director of operations for the University of Saskatchewan College of Nursing.  In 2007 he was appointed director of consumer services, prior to taking up the position of acting vice-president finance and resources. 

Working on many diverse cross-campus initiatives, Mr. Fowler has extensive experience working among many areas of the university.  He served as the representative for the four Saskatchewan federated colleges on the Working Group and Standing Committee for University Funding formed to reach agreement on the implementation and continued development of the Saskatchewan University Funding Model. Within Consumer Services, Mr. Fowler was project lead for the undergraduate and graduate student housing projects, oversaw significant reorganizations to printing, parking, and residence services, and a reorganization of food services that included major renovations to Marquis Hall Food Court.  He was also project lead for phases 1 and 2 of the Service and Process Enhancement Project, which was established to develop recommendations for service and process enhancement while ensuring the most effective and efficient use of resources.
