Judson Tops Education in Elgin


Byline: Jerry B. Cain President, Judson University

One of the greatest aspects of Elgin is the blossoming university located at the key intersection of I-90 and Illinois 31. Judson University occupies 90 acres on that corner, has been growing with Elgin since 1963 and is poised to celebrate its first 50 years in Elgin in 2013.

Opening originally with 92 students, the enrollment has increased 13-fold, bringing energetic and creative youth to the community. A focused, full-time faculty of 70 scholars provide academic resources to Elgin that few small cities can emulate. The vivacity of an academic community is always enriching to the entire larger community.

Judson makes Elgin great by bringing prestige to the neighborhood. This year two members of the Judson faculty were awarded Fulbright Scholarships.

The Harm A. Weber Academic Center was completed in 2007 as the first gold LEED-rated academic building in the United States, which greatly enhances the reputation of Elgin. Our academic programs are consistently ranked as Top Tier by the U.S. News and World Report Best Colleges report. World leaders such as George W. Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev visit Judson and Elgin to address the issues of global leadership. Competitive intercollegiate athletic teams fill the sports page with stories of what is good, right and healthy about university athletics.

Judson makes Elgin great by being an economic engine for the city. The university brings over $29 million into the community and creates over 200 full-time jobs. Students support local businesses, eateries and entertainment venues while making ethical and dependable employees for local

employers.
