SG hosts one or two "Leadership Conversations" per quarter, a forum in which administrators present on their work and role in the University and then answer questions from students in the audience. If you have suggestions on who you'd like to hear from, let us know!

Past Leadership Conversations include:

Conversation on Finance and Investment

Nim Chinniah, Executive Vice President for Administration and Chief Financial Officer, and Mark Schmid, Vice President and Chief Investment Officer, discussed the university’s budget, the process behind funding new initiatives, and how their talented teams ensure the long-term value of the endowment. 

Conversation on Community Engagement

Derek Douglas, Vice President of the Office of Civic Engagement, Stacy Lindau, MD, Associate Professor OB/GYN and Medicine and the Urban Health Initiative and Director of South Side Health and Vitality Studies, and Shayne Evans, Managing Director of the Urban Education Institute, will discuss the University's role in civic engagement.

Conversation on Finance and Higher Education

Nim Chinniah, Executive Vice President for Administration and Chief Financial Officer, David L Murphy, Associate Provost and University Budget Director, and John Kroll, Associate Vice President for Finance, will discuss university priorities and the role of finance in higher education.
