The program is re-locating to the Water Tower Campus, near downtown
Chicago. As of this fall, all of our classes are being taught at that site. This brings our students closer to the geographic center of government agencies and non-profit organizations in the city.
We are happy to announce that we are adding a
four-class Certificate in Public Affairs and Managemen
t Program with the spring 2016
enrollment. This program offers the opportunity for public officials to gain practical skills to further their professional development.
The start of my term as a co-editor of the Urb
an Affairs Review journal was last January. I am seeing a significant amount of the most current academic research on urban issues, spanning multiple disciplines. I have been calling on several LUC
colleagues to review and contribute articles, and they have helped me considerably!
We also are very excited to introduce some of our faculty and alumni in this issue. Dr. Kiljoong Kim is an esteemed statistician who is transferring his passion for using data to do good work to our students. Sebastian Ellefson has done incredible things in the six months since he graduated, and we look forward to continue seeing his work in the news. These two represent our program well, but they are only some of our amazing faculty, alumni, and students.
