The College of Health Sciences invites the campus community to celebrate a well deserved retirement for Glenda Hill, director of Student Services and Academic Advising for the College of Health Sciences. The celebration will be held from 2:30 – 3:30 pm on Friday, December 7 in room 114 of the Norco Building.

Hill has served as a tremendous advocate for students in multiple facets of their student development for over 41 years at Boise State. For 37 years, she has been in an advising role for the College of Health Sciences. Prior to working for the College of Health Sciences, Hill was the coordinator for the Homemaker Service Program and the Neighborhood ABE Outreach for the Adult Learning Center at Boise State where she developed programs, policies, and relationships within the community. Hill received her undergraduate degree and a Master’s degree in Adult and Vocational Education from the University of Idaho.

During her time at Boise State, Hill served in many leadership positions in both national and regional academic advising organizations. She also served two terms as Professional Staff Senator and in 2001, Hill was awarded the Inaugural Professional Staff of the Year. Most recently, Hill was honored as the Staff Coach for the November 3 Homecoming Game vs. BYU.

“Glenda is a fabulous role model for colleagues, staff and students,” said Erin Colburn and Olga Salinas, academic advisors for Student Services and Academic Advising. “We know many students would not have been successful without her guidance and mentorship.”

“The positive impact that Glenda has had on students, our college and our larger campus community is immeasurable,” said Joelle Powers, associate dean for the College of Health Sciences. “What a gift her service has been, and we wish her nothing but the best in this transition.”
