A retirement reception for long-time University Honors Program administrator Marcia Glenn is set for Friday, Dec. 9 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the University Honors Forum (Student Health Center, lower level).

Glenn assisted Rosalie Otero, director of the University Honors Program since 1996, with contract and grant accounts; compiling information and preparing reports and trend analyses; processing all faculty hiring paperwork and advising new faculty and staff on university and AA/EEO policies; developing procedures and assigning work tasks to improve efficiency.   

Otero said, "The Honors Program has made great strides in curriculum, standards and procedures and faculty development due substantially to Marcia's ability to generate the necessary instrument, method or system to make the changes not only feasible, but functional.  She will be missed greatly."

Glenn, who has been at the University of New Mexico since May of 1994, received a Masters in German from the University of Massachusetts and a Masters in International Journalism from Baylor University.
