Chicago-Kent announced the public phase of its first campaign back in 2006 to raise $1.5 million to fund its first endowed chair. More than 400 Chicago-Kent alumni and friends contributed $1.5 million to complete the campaign to fund the Ralph Brill Chair. While they were waiting to hold the investiture ceremony, the school had its first Ralph Brill Distinguished Visitor, who was Terri LeClercq. Click here to read an earlier post about that (and to see a lovely picture of Terri).
Adrian Walters will be the chair holder. We hear that he's a lovely guy from Nottingham University in Great Britain, and that he has a terrific sense of humor, not too much different from Ralph. And like Ralph, he's very much into students and quality teaching.
