A summa cum laude graduate of Pennsylvania State University's BS, M.Ed. and Ph.D. programs, Dr. Fay Glosenger joined the Juniata faculty in 1982. Recognized throughout her professional career for her teaching, leadership, and scholarship, Dr Glosenger is the recipient of several awards, including Outstanding PA Teacher of the Year (1979), the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation Award for Excellence in Teaching (1988); the Beachley Award for Distinguished Academic Service (1999); and the Martin G. Brumbaugh Endowed Chair in Education (1999). She chaired the Education Department from 1988-1999.

Professor Glosenger's primary area of interest is early childhood education. She teaches courses in child development, children's literature, early education, and parenting. She supervises the directors and program at Juniata's Early Childhood Education Center.

An active member of the NAEYC and PAC-TE, Dr. Glosenger recently authored a proposal to host the Governor's Institute for Early Childhood Educators, which brought a $120,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education to Juniata (summer 2000); Dr. Glosenger served as site facilitator for the event. Dr. Glosenger directs Juniata's New Visions and Voyages Summer Camps for Gifted Children; she is the cofounder of the program (1988).

A strong advocate for young children, Dr. Glosenger is actively involved at both the local and state level in consultant work and policy development. Recently, she chaired the task force that wrote the new standards for PA certification in early childhood education and joined the task force appointed to assist PA public schools at risk. She serves on state review teams and the Steering Committees for Read to Succeed and the Governor's Institute for Early Childhood Educators. Locally, she serves on the Professional Development Design Team for Tuscorora Intermediate Unit 11; the Huntingdon Area School District's Strategic Planning, Early Childhood, and Professional Development Committees; and several college committees.

Dr. Glosenger and her husband, Harry Stroup, reside in Huntingdon with their daughter Keveney and their dog, Snickerdoodle. Emma Quibel Creany, a former exchange student from England, also remains an important part of their family.
