Peggy Dean Glenn has joined the UNC School of Public Health as associate dean for external affairs, responsible for development and alumni relations.

Glenn brings more than 20 years’ development experience to UNC. She has been an associate dean at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences in Durham, N.C., for the past eight years. Before joining Duke, she was regional director of development for The Nature Conservancy in Chapel Hill, N.C., for seven years. Previously, she was president of a New York-based consulting firm.

“We are delighted Peggy has joined our School,” says Dean Barbara K. Rimer. “She brings a wealth of experience and is well-grounded in public health issues. At the Nicholas School, she was actively engaged in fundraising related to water quality, environmentally-induced disease and the health implications of climate change. Not only is Peggy well positioned for her new role at UNC, she is also a Carolina parent and knows firsthand the role we play in North Carolina and around the world.”
