Eastern names new vice president for Student Affairs
WILBURTON, OK (Dec. 18, 2012) – Dr. Stephen Glazier has been named Eastern Oklahoma State College’s new vice president for Student Affairs.
Glazier, who joined Eastern in December, will oversee a varied list of programs within Student Affairs such as Academic Advisement, Admissions, Athletics, Career Services, Cooperative Alliances, Financial Aid, GEAR UP, Native American Programs, Recruitment, Residential Housing, Scholarships, Student Life, and Testing.
“We are excited about the addition of Dr. Glazier to the Eastern Oklahoma State College team,” said Eastern President Dr. Stephen Smith. “He brings a reputation of great energy and creative ideas to our institution. We look forward to his leadership in the division of student affairs."
Most recently, Glazier served as the Director of Counseling and Career Services at Northern Oklahoma College Enid. He was with the college for 13 years.
“My primary educational topic of interest involves college retention and graduation theory. As such, I view Student Affairs not as just extra-curricular activities, but as a vital co-curricular component of the overall student educational process,” Glazier said. “With that in mind, Student Affairs programing is intentionally designed to increase both institutional and goal commitment of our EOSC students.”
A native Oklahoman, Glazier received his bachelor’s degree from Central State University, a master’s degree from Northwestern Oklahoma State University and a doctorate in Educational Leadership from Oral Roberts University. He and his wife, Judith, have three children.
“I have dedicated my life to helping students achieve their educational goals,” Glazier said. “I am honored to be a member of the Eastern Oklahoma State College team and I look forward to the opportunity to serve under Dr. Smith and work with our students, faculty and staff.”
