News Marlboro College Appoints Richard Glejzer as New Dean of Faculty and Graduate Education
Marlboro College welcomes Richard Glejzer as the Dean of Faculty and Graduate Education.
Prior to joining Marlboro, Glejzer served as Professor and Chair of English at North Central College in Naperville, Illinois, which has a tradition of strong faculty governance and which also hosts graduate programs. He spent three years as Chair of the college's Academic Programs and Policy Committee, which managed the curriculum and also program review and assessment. Among his other institutional duties, Glejzer served on the college's Steering Committee and the Dean's Academic Advisory Committee. He was a faculty liaison to the Board of Trustees. Earlier in his career at North Central, Glejzer revised the composition program as the Director of Writing.
"A place like Marlboro College offers students the possibility to connect their education to their life goals in a natural way. Students here are able to pull together things that other people haven't necessarily pulled together, and I think that's fascinating," said Glejzer, who has relocated to Vermont with his wife, Lynn and their two sons, Henry and Ian.
Glejzer teaching interests have ranged in the areas of medieval literature, rhetoric and cultural theory, while focusing on representations of the Holocaust and other traumatic events. He has co-edited two volumes on the subject, as well as co-authored a book with Michael Bernard-Donals, Between Witness and Testimony: The Holocaust and the Limits of Representation, published by SUNY Press in 2001, along with authoring numerous essays, chapters, reviews, and presentations. Glejzer received his bachelor's and master's degrees in English from the University of New Hampshire and his Ph.D. from University of Missouri-Columbia.
"I am delighted that Richard has accepted this position. His experiences as a faculty member engaged in his institution, his understanding of Marlboro College and his collaborative decision-making process make him a perfect fit," said President Ellen McCulloch-Lovell, who also announced that Visual Arts professor, Tim Segar, has agreed to serve a one-year term as Associate Dean of Faculty.
