Why Stritch?

"My first introduction to Stritch was a course I took with Pat Magestro as my school transitioned to the block schedule. She had a warm, friendly demeanor and shared practical strategies for creating an active learning environment. Based upon that experience and Stritch’s outstanding reputation, I enrolled in the Master’s in Educational Leadership program. While in the program, faculty supported me as an adult learner and facilitated my growth as leader. When the opportunity arose to become an adjunct faculty member, I enthusiastically accepted the position. As my responsibilities expanded within the College of Education and Leadership, I gradually became a full-time faculty member. During my two decades of interaction with faculty and staff, I have found Stritch to be a place where people take an interest in you as a person and what you want to accomplish, create, and become. This is my answer to “Why Stritch?”"
