Chicago Office Closing
While alumni engagement and student recruitment efforts remain strong, the necessity of maintaining fixed office space in Chicago has declined, due in part to improved technology and targeted programming. After considerable discussion, the Illinois State University Foundation decided to not renew the lease at 150 N. Michigan Ave. The office will remain open through December 12, 2019, with the last date to reserve office space being November 27, 2019. Questions regarding the closing of the Chicago Office can be directed to Jill Jones.
