A message from Illinois Institute of Technology President Alan W. Cramb:
Jeanne Hartig, Ph.D., vice president for marketing and communications, has decided to retire from her position; her last day at Illinois Institute of Technology will be December 15. Prior to joining our university, Jeanne served as vice president for marketing and communications at National-Louis University (NLU) from 2006–2010.
As vice president at Illinois Tech, Jeanne managed the university’s marketing initiatives as well as internal and external communications, including Web development, media relations, editorial, video production, and design. She was responsible for the successful redesign of our Web presence and, by partnering with our admissions colleagues, has been responsible for a significant increase in those students interested in applying to Illinois Tech. Her leadership has resulted in our media presence being significant—not only in the Chicago region but also nationally and globally. She also has led our rebranding efforts and has been the spokesperson for our university for the past five years. During this time Jeanne also completed her doctoral degree in community psychology at NLU.
Jeanne has succeeded in all of her responsibilities, and our university is a better place due to her efforts. It has been my pleasure as president and provost to work with Jeanne. I am sure that I speak for each of you in wishing that her retirement exceeds her expectations.
Thank you, Jeanne, for your efforts on behalf of our university.
