Associate Dean and Director, Health Professions Advising & Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program
Glenn’s guiding interest is in providing individualized support and advice to the postbac student population, having spent the bulk of his career advising students entering the health professions. After finishing his doctorate in American Literature at the University of Virginia, Glenn shifted his professional focus to academic advising, and later became UVA’s Director of Pre-professional Advising. In 2004 he moved to Princeton University, where for the next eight years he advised scores of students through their pre-medical education, chaired the Committee on the Health Professions, and expanded the pre-health advising program significantly. He then returned to his small liberal arts college roots—having attended Colby College himself—and accepted a position at Franklin & Marshall College as the new Director of Health Professions Advising, with the task of rebuilding a robust advising program at a school with a rich history of graduates entering medicine. He arrived at Bryn Mawr in August 2014.
Glenn is an active member of both the Northeast Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (NEAAHP) and the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (NAAHP), serving on the NAAHP’s Postbac Committee. With a particular interest in writing, he has also chaired the NAAHP’s Letters of Evaluation Task Force, served as Assistant Director on the Communications Committee, and contributed to the Association of American Medical Colleges’ Letters of Evaluation Advisory Group.
