Support for Student Out-of-Pocket COVID-19 Testing Expenses

Dear Students,

I am happy to announce that Illinois Tech will be using part of the most recent generous gift from Board of Trustees Chairman Michael P. Galvin (LAW ’78) to cover student out-of-pocket COVID-19 testing expenses, starting at the beginning of the fall semester. Up to $1 million from Chairman Galvin’s gift will go to support those costs.

“The health and academic success of the Illinois Tech community is the top priority of the Board of Trustees, and I am proud to see the university supporting our students in this way,” says Galvin.

On behalf of the entire Illinois Tech community, I would like to thank Chairman Galvin for his generous support of Illinois Tech as well as his steadfast leadership during these trying times.
