Welcome to a New Academic Year

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you all to the beginning of a new academic year.

Illinois Tech is a diverse and collaborative community where individuals from a broad range of backgrounds come together to make the world a better place through research and scholarly work. The upcoming year presents us with a unique opportunity to further the university’s founding mission to advance technology in order to create a more equitable future for all.

I hope you enjoy this video from me welcoming you to what I am confident will be a positive and productive year.

Thank you all for your extraordinary contributions to our university community.
