Recipient of a bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame, a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from DePaul University, and a Juris Doctor Degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology-Kent College of Law, he is the former Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for DePaul University.
