North Central College - Naperville, IL

Message from the President

Fall 2014

Having personally graduated from a small college that placed great emphasis on the liberal arts, it’s easy to advocate for North Central College. As I talk to prospective students and parents during campus visits, I enjoy being able to personally endorse the value of our academic program. And aside from my own experiences, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that liberal arts graduates are well-prepared for personal and professional success. Our graduates think critically, communicate clearly and have the skills to solve complex problems.

Message from the President

We’re finally welcoming spring at North Central College. The flowers have bloomed and the campus has come to life with students pedaling their Cardinal red bikes. It was a rough winter in terms of cold and snow, but our faculty and staff, particularly our maintenance department, kept the campus productive and functioning.

Message from the President

This Annual Report reviews the excellent results achieved by North Central College during fiscal year 2012-2013. In addition to a 42nd consecutive balanced budget, the recruiting of a stellar class of first-year and transfer students and growing numbers of engaged scholars and Presidents Club donors, the year was highlighted by a transition in presidential leadership. During 2012-2013, I was honored to assume the presidency of North Central College from Dr. Harold R. Wilde, who officially retired on December 31, 2012.

President's message

It’s been a spectacular fall at North Central College! Homecoming was a special high point because I saw so many of you on campus. What a great opportunity to gather the College family together again and to remind ourselves how important our personal connections really are. I hope you will be able to attend next year’s celebration (October 16-19 is already marked on my calendar).

President's message

While finishing my doctoral degree, I had a job offer to lead an R&D project for a small technology company. After spending time with the entrepreneurial founder—who was also a physicist—I realized I was more interested in the entrepreneur’s job than in the research. So to get more business experience, I accepted another offer in hand with a leading management consulting firm.

President's message

What an honor to write this column as the 10th president of North Central College!

My family and I have had a great time getting to know the College over the last few months. I’ve learned very quickly that this is one busy campus—even in the middle of a Chicago winter. From the alumni track & field meet, basketball games and the International Festival, to the Martin Luther King prayer breakfast and Chicago Sinfonietta performance, we’ve enjoyed experiencing the diverse and enriching opportunities this campus offers.
