Alumni News

Your 2012–13 Bradley University Alumni Association (BUAA) officers were elected in May. They are (pictured from left to right): vice president AMY TURK ’97; president GARRETT WILLIAMS ’92; president-elect BRIAN MILLER ’79; and immediate past president SHELLY HEIDEN ’85. These volunteers, along with dozens of other BUAA directors and network leaders, work tirelessly on behalf of our alma mater to ensure a bright future for Bradley University. You can meet all our BUAA board members at

Through their leadership, the alumni association continues to provide meaningful programs for alumni and students, from admissions assistance and mentoring to reunions and professional development. 

I am also pleased to announce that our second professional development webinar is scheduled for November 14. Join Caterpillar Professor of Management Dr. LARRY WEINZIMMER ’83 MBA ’85 for The Wisdom of Failure, a discussion about how insights learned from failure are indispensable in creating great leaders. You can learn more and register at

This webinar is one of a series of personal and professional development programs leading up to our inaugural 2013 Leadership Summit on Bradley’s campus June 13–15. The summit will feature a host of Bradley’s most successful alumni and faculty, industry leaders, and experts who will share important lessons in leadership. Plan now to attend this educational and fun networking event, or submit your session proposal to be considered as a presenter!
