Bradley’s New President Joanne K. Glasser, Esq.

Joanne K. Glasser, Esq. is greeted by student body president Jordan Ticaric ’08 after Glasser was named Bradley’s 10th president, and first female president, at a news conference at Dingeldine Music Center on August 7. Glasser had been president of Eastern Kentucky University since 2001. Previously, she was executive vice president and chief advancement officer of Towson University in Baltimore.

Glasser graduated from George Washington University, the University of Maryland School of Law, and the Harvard University Graduate School of Education Institute for Higher Education Management. Glasser plans to be a visible figure on campus and said she will “work day and night to earn your respect, your faith, your trust, and I will do so through the very simple but oftentimes lost and forgotten art of listening.”

A feature on Glasser will follow in the upcoming winter issue of Bradley Hilltopics.
