Anne Glavin, a former police officer and public safety director at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has been named director of public safety at Cal State Northridge.
Glavin, CSUN's first female public safety director, took over from the department's interim director, Lt. Alfredo Fernandez, on July 31. Former department director Ron Seacrist left the university months ago to return to the East Coast.
Mo Qayoumi, CSUN's vice president for administration and finance, announced Glavin's appointment to the campus. At CSUN, Glavin will oversee a Public Safety Department that includes police, parking, transportation services and the student-staffed Community Service Officer program.
Glavin's accomplishments at MIT included developing the first comprehensive hate crimes response policy in the state of Massachusetts, establishing a community policing partnership initiative with the Cambridge Police Department, and implementing the first university police uniformed bicycle patrol unit in the Northeast.
While at MIT, she was president of the National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives and a commissioner of the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Program.
Glavin began her law enforcement career in 1975 as a MIT police officer. She later served as chief of police from 1987 to 2001 and director of public safety for the past year.
Glavin has been recognized as an outstanding public safety officer and is a recipient of the Achievement Award of the Massachusetts Association of College and University Public Safety Directors. She also was recognized by the Governor's Task Force on Hate Crimes in Massachusetts.
Glavin received her bachelor's degree from Wheaton College and her master's degree from Boston University. She is also a graduate of the National Crime Prevention Institute and the Management Institute for Women in Higher Education.
