(Glenn, Wendy J. - 2023) -- President's Teaching Scholar uri icon



  • Wendy Glenn is professor of literacy studies and chair of the Secondary Humanities Teacher Licensure program at CU Boulder. Her research centers on literature for young adults and how story can be used to both foster connection and invite disruption in students, teachers and the learning environments they share. Glenn’s teaching is guided by the assumption that inviting classroom spaces and genuine student learning are predicated on the creation of a community in which each member feels valued, supported and capable. When students and teachers work together to build trusting relationships growing from knowledge of and respect for individual needs and interests, opportunities for authentic learning, growth and humanistic connection are fostered.

    The title of President’s Teaching Scholar honors excellence in and commitment to learning and teaching, as well as active, substantial contributions to scholarly work. President Saliman solicits annual nominations of faculty across the four campuses for the designation, which is a lifetime appointment.
