Jennifer Gigliotti, executive director of our Center for College Readiness, has been named an associate dean of the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies.
“This new title reflects her academic and administrative responsibilities within the school, campus-wide, and in the broader community,” according to Mary McIntire, ’75, dean of Continuing Studies. “She is increasingly asked to represent Rice in K-12 communities regionally and nationally.”
Gigliotti was recently asked to integrate several of the university’s K-12 outreach programs into Continuing Studies, as well as to provide support for all other Rice K-12 with the expressed intent of communication, coordination and collaboration among the various groups.
The mission of Center for College Readiness is to provide development opportunities for teachers, administrators and students to deepen their knowledge of academic content and increase their awareness of the importance of college readiness skills.
In 2011, Gigliotti was honored by the Rice Board of Trustees for her achievements within Continuing Studies and was awarded the Adelle F. Robertson Continuing Professional Educator Award from the University Professional Continuing Education Association.
Gigliotti holds an Ed.D. in curriculum and instruction from the University of Houston as well as an M.Ed. in secondary social studies education and a B.A. in psychology and history from Ohio State University.
