The following Faculty Senate resolution was read at the CoD Board of Trustees meeting on Dec 15, 2016.
BE IT RESOLVED BY The College of DuPage Faculty Senate that we thank Glenn Hansen for his long and dedicated service to the Association and to the College of DuPage as a whole.
Glenn Hansen has served seven years as President of the COD Faculty Association. His first term was from 2006 – 2008, and he returned to lead the Association in January 2012.
Glenn has set a model for leadership in a complex organization and guided the Association through a period of great internal strife. Glenn undertook bold resolutions with courage and dexterity and in all his interactions with COD administration demonstrated courtesy and respect.
He handled daunting tasks, including appearing before the editorial board of a large urban newspaper in 2014, with skill, and his beliefs, actions, and comments always focused on teaching and student learning in every venue. He modeled civic engagement not just as a local president, but as a leader in DuPage County, especially on issues that matter the most to students and taxpayers.
His guidance and support for CODFA members and leaders regarding teaching, learning, and forging relationships with administrators and board members has been invaluable. Glenn Hansen ends his leadership of the Association having set it on a path for future prosperity.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this resolution will be provided to the Board of Trustees and posted on the CODFA website and appropriate social media.
