Meet the Dean

Glenn R. Sharfman

Vice President and Dean for Academic Affairs

Glenn Sharfman leads the University’s faculty and academic programs and serves as liaison and advisor to the faculty and the president of the University. He joined Manchester University on July 1, 2005.

He is a history scholar with a background in small college administration, most recently as associate dean and director of graduate studies of Hiram College in northeast Ohio.

“I believe that making a positive difference in a young person’s life is a reward that makes teaching and mentoring a privilege,” said Dr. Sharfman, who also plans to teach a history course at Manchester annually.

Dr. Sharfman has published more than 22 works and papers, with special interest in the Holocaust and Jewish history. Visitors to his office on the first floor of the Administration Building will find his shelves filled with a fascinating collection of history books and writings.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Miami University of Ohio and a master’s degree and Ph.D. in history from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
