This year NLU has presented a strong lineup of programs to support our intellectual community.
In the fall we brought you TEDx, a series of independent TED talks exploring teacher voice. We also hosted Startup Weekend, where an NLU alum and Dean Chris Cassirer were part of winning entrepreneurial ventures. Twice a year we partner with the Golden Apple Foundation and Chicago Shakespeare Theater to host a series of symposia on the changing landscape of the education system.
National Louis University alumni are out there in the world doing great things in the workplace and in their communities. We would like to share some recent achievements from a few of our alumni. If you would like to give us an update on what you’re doing, contact Alumni Relations Director Kimberly Michaelson at email@example.com.
