Message From the President

As a long-time educator in Illinois, I have admired IMSA’s role as an international leader in developing talent and leadership in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). I am honored and privileged to now serve as IMSA’s second president.

This first year, I have been meeting with educational leaders and policy makers across Illinois as well as IMSA students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni and donors to solicit ideas and determine our critical needs. From these conversations, I am convinced that IMSA’s service to students, teachers and schools is more relevant and important than ever. The challenges we face in the 21st century will need to be addressed by the talents and contributions of scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs. Working as real partners in dynamic networks, we can and must ensure that Illinois students have accomplished teachers, supportive mentors and resources to support effective STEM education.
