The award recognizes the exceptional contribution Glenn has made to the UTSA SI program and to the SI field. The award also acknowledges the UTSA SI team led by Associate Director Margaret Jackson-Floyd, and Associate Director Cynthia McCowen (recently promoted to associate director of the Quantitative Tutoring Lab). Currently serving more than 9,000 students annually, UTSA's SI program was established in 1996 and continues to grow.
Glenn came to UTSA in 1995, bringing more than 20 years of experience in teaching and administering college-level student academic support programs serving minority student populations in New Mexico, Maryland and Texas. She has published in the areas of college-level study skills, early intervention programs for at-risk college students and first-year student transitions.
Glenn has served on several UTSA committees on student learning, student retention and success, and most recently the Blue Ribbon Committee on the Undergraduate Experience. In 2006, she was named associate dean of retention and graduation to head a team researching barriers to graduation. The team's charge is to assist the various colleges in developing plans to improve UTSA retention and graduation rates.
