Marian Glancy was appointed chief academic officer at Antioch University Midwest last month. She replaces Marianne Short, who had been interim CAO for two years. The appointment make the position a permanent one at AU Midwest.
Glancy has worked for AUM for over 10 years as a core faculty member and as director of Midwest’s School of Education, which has been Midwest’s largest program for the past 10 years. According to AU Midwest President Karen Schuster Webb, Glancy has had a strong faculty presence and was instrumental in helping the School of Education achieve special accreditation through the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation.
“Dr. Glancy has helped countless students achieve their academic, civic, and personal goals through her mentorship, tutelage, and by sharing strategies to excel,” said Dr. Karen Schuster Webb, president of Antioch University Midwest. “As Chief Academic Officer, she will continue that tradition while providing her expertise, leadership and vision to our university. “
In her role as director of academic programming, Glancy said she plans to focus on outreach to support both new and existing programs at Midwest by reviewing programming and delivery models and expanding partnerships with local businesses and community colleges. Midwest has seen success with newer programs such as data analytics and healthcare advocacy, for example, and Glancy hopes to look at curriculum development and ways to attract more students to those areas of study.
“My responsibility is to develop and manage oversight of the Midwest campus’s academic affairs,” she said last week. “Success for me requires me to develop and sustain strategic relations with educational, business and government institutions throughout the Miami Valley region — building strategic, reciprocal partnerships.”
Prior to her appointment at AUM, Glancy was a research fellow at the Kettering Foundation, and served as a faculty member and administrator at Jewel and Esk Valley College in Edinburgh, Scotland. She received a PhD in educational leadership and a Master’s of Science in education from the University of Dayton.
