Dr. Erick Henderson ’12 had the opportunity to work with fellow Titan Dr. Lindsay Sicks ’06 at the American Optometric Association annual meeting in St. Louis, MO.

Both work with contact lens industry partners to teach practitioners across the country about specialty contact lens designs. They spent the day teaching optometrists and optometry students about scleral contact lens fitting.

Thank-A-Giver Day (TAG Day) is on Monday, February 11. This day provides the IWU campus community with the opportunity to thank the donors who support Illinois Wesleyan. IWU celebrates each year in mid-February because it marks the symbolic point during the academic year – about 70% of the way through – when tuition dollars run out and support from alumni and friends, our endowment, and external grants kicks in for the remainder of the year.

Thank you to all donors who help make the IWU experience possible!

Jordan (Diehl) Mann ’12 shared with us her experience volunteering with Step Up Women’s Network.


“This is my second year volunteering as a mentor for the high school women in under-served communities in Chicago, but it was my first time attending their “College Connection Conference” as I typically work with their after-school programs.  It was a really neat event! 
It was a day-long conference where we were paired with a high school woman, attending sessions focused on getting the young women excited about secondary education, and addressing potential concerns they may have.   As a mentor, our role was to share our experiences in undergrad and let the women know they have professional women who care about their development.”
