According to David H. Kalsbeek, senior vice president for Enrollment Management and Marketing, “[O]ur greatest asset is the breadth and depth of our portfolio of academic programs in our schools and colleges. Combine that with the fact that Chicago is a destination, world-class city with great allure to students and you have a formula that is attractive to students looking to successfully meet their educational needs in a less-than-ideal economy.”
