Meet Our Leadership 

Glenda Ballard

Glenda Ballard, Associate Vice President for Graduate and Professional Programs

At St. Edward’s University, we prepare you for life. Participating in classes, internships and practicums will provide you both a chance to grow and change, but, also, give you a chance to teach others to grow and change, as well. The expertise you will gain in your program will not only enhance your own life but will allow you to impact the lives of others.

We are a highly motivated and talented team of educators. We create open and constructive learning environments where students have the freedom to ask questions and form their own opinions about important issues. Students are encouraged to share and test findings in their communities as scholars and citizens. It is our greatest hope that our students graduate with inspired perspectives, motivated to make positive and significant changes in their communities and the lives of others.
