President Glenn To Resign
May 2, 2018
The Athens State University Board of Trustees has announced that Dr. Robert “Bob” Glenn will resign from his role as president.
Glenn, who became the University’s 36th president in 2008, was integral in helping lead the University in its transition from the Alabama Community College System to a fully independent state university with an autonomous board of trustees.
“We appreciate Dr. Glenn’s contributions in helping build Athens State to where it is today, and we thank him for the vision he has shared with us over the past decade. We are excited to build on the momentum that has been created, shaping the future of higher education as we approach our bicentennial in 2022,” said Cathy Dickens, board chair. “We wish Dr. Glenn well in his future endeavors.”
Plans are underway to establish a presidential transition team, including a search committee who will work to identify a leader to build upon our solid foundation. Due to the time typically required to hire a new President, it is anticipated an interim President will be appointed. Future updates concerning the presidential search will be communicated online and through local media outlets.
