"Jeff chose to work at Cardinal Stritch University because of their respected image with the community. He has several friends and even an Uncle that graduated with a degree from Stritch. The pandemic caused him to reassess the industry he worked in and broaden his horizon to include higher education, which he feels is more reliable. He is excited to bring his outside perspective with him to Stritch and learn from his colleagues at the same time."
