August – September 2019

A big emphasis in this issue is ACI’s Career Development Conference and Employer Expo, Oct. 4, at North Central College, Naperville. Students attending will participate in skill-building sessions, hear inspirational speakers and meet directly with potential employers. Our featured member in this issue is North Park University, Chicago, and President Mary K. Surridge. We shared updated results from our member data research project, that shows our 26 members contribute a value of $3.5 billion to the Illinois economy among many other significant qualities. We reported on three new ACI board members, Justin Lee Allen, Kelly Kirkman and Debora L. Osgood. We reported on new leaders and initiatives at several member institutions, plus three awards presented to ACI for communication work. Finally, two students told us their stories, Xavier Jobe of Dominican University, River Forest, and Camille Pruvost of Principia College, Elsah.
