As director, Cavin will oversee the long-range planning and manage the day-to-day activities of the graduate online program and continuing education office.

Cavin arrives to Auburn from Troy University where he was the associate vice chancellor for TROY Online and was responsible for the operation and strategic direction of Troy’s academic programs for more than 6,700 online students. Before Troy, Cavin served in the United States Air Force for 24 years. He earned his undergraduate degree in business management from the University of Louisiana – Lafayette.

“The College of Engineering is extremely fortunate Glynn has chosen to join our online and continuing education office,” said Jeff Fergus, associate dean of program assessment and graduate studies at the College of Engineering. “He brings a unique perspective, and has the knowledge and experience necessary to grow our graduate online and continuing education programs. I look forward to working with him to elevate Auburn Engineering Online and Continuing Education.”

Cavin succeeds Greg Ruff, who recently retired after more than 20 years with the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering.
