How to Balance Economic Realities with Ethical Implications: A Closer Look at Antioch University Midwest
Chief academic officer to discuss how the university maintains and preserves its commitment to mission-driven education at Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce event
Dayton and Yellow Springs, Ohio – Dr. Marian Glancy, chief academic officer at Antioch University Midwest (AUM), will be the featured speaker at the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce’s Breakfast Briefing on Friday, November 13 at the Dayton Racquet Club, 40 N. Main Street, Dayton, at 7:15 am. She will discuss how, in the face of a dramatically changing internal and external landscape, AUM passionately maintains and preserves its commitment to a mission-driven education rooted in a rigorous liberal arts lineage.
“Ensuring your organizations’ values and mission remain at the fore front of each and every decision takes focus, effort, and the support of every person involved in advancing it,” Dr. Glancy said. “Antioch University Midwest is an excellent example of how to ensure that a culture of social justice, diversity, and access to education for all – especially working adults – remains the glue that unites our institution with our students, and drives our success.”
Dr. Glancy’s presentation, How Antioch University Midwest Is Responsive to Market Needs in a Global Economy, focuses on the accredited, nonprofit university’s powerful narrative as a pioneer in adult education serving students who seek innovative education, professional preparation, and the knowledge and skills to advance social, economic, and environmental justice. She will illustrate how AUM is able to be mission centric while at the same time, responsive to market needs in a global economy, such as through its new online data analytics certificate program that prepares graduates to compete in one of Ohio’s fastest-growing employment fields while understanding the ethical implications of “big data.”
Dr. Glancy is the prior director of AUM’s School of Education. Among her accomplishments, she successfully led the extraordinary team effort that enhanced the School of Education’s national reputation through accreditation by the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation. Prior to her appointment at AUM, Dr. Glancy was a research fellow at the Kettering Foundation and served as a faculty member and administrator at Jewel and Esk Valley College in Edinburgh, Scotland. She received a PhD in Educational Leadership and a Master’s of Science in Education from the University of Dayton. Her Bachelor’s of Education is from Dunfermline College in Scotland.
