Tennessee State University President Glenda Glover is among an elite group of women making their mark in higher education. President Glover joins former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and an esteemed list of women that comprise the Top 25 Women in Higher Education. Diverse Issues in Higher Education magazine honors the women in its March issue highlighting Women’s History Month.
“I am extremely honored and humbled to be included on a list with such a diverse group of my colleagues that have made a commitment to improving the human standing through higher education,” said President Glover. “This recognition is an honor for me, but also for Tennessee State University and for the other institutions where I have had the privilege to serve at as a faculty member, department chair, college and dean. Tennessee State University is where my journey began as a student and served as my catalyst to become an educator. I express my gratitude that I now receive this honor as the University’s president.”
Dr. Glover, who is an attorney and a certified public accountant, began serving as President of Tennessee State University on January 2, 2013. Prior to taking the helm of her alma mater, she served as the dean of the College of Business at Jackson State University and as chairperson of the Dept. of Accounting at Howard University.
