Feature Story

Steven C. Bahls
President, Augustana College

Augustana College shines with unique programs for students, important contributions to Quad Cities' community

Steven Bahls has enjoyed multiple and varied careers. He is a lawyer and CPA, with experience as a law school faculty member and dean, and now, a college president. Some amateur photography work, too. His journey to Augustana College, Rock Island, began with a suggestion from a small college president, Sister Joel Read of Alverno College in Milwaukee. In the mid 1980s, Bahls was a successful attorney doing pro bono work for the Alverno, when she suggested he consider a career in academia. His wife Jane, was a faculty member at the college at the time, teaching religious studies. Bahls listened to that advice, and with some recommendations from Sister Read, left to join the law faculty at the University of Montana, later becoming associate law school dean.
