How do you sum up a year’s

worth of accomplishments at

IIT when every day is filled

with new discoveries and


A visit to Main Campus will tell the story of the

extraordinary physical transformations of the

past year, as we continued our proud architectural

tradition with the new McCormick

Tribune Campus Center and State Street Village

residence hall, and made important strides in

restoring our historic Mies buildings and

enhancing our landscape architecture.

We strengthened our interprofessional curriculum

by creating the Institute for Business and

Interprofessional Studies, which houses our

successful Interprofessional Projects program

and innovative new “Techno-Business” program.

Several of our other academic units also benefited

from new administrative leadership, and our

faculty continued to bring innovation to the

classroom, laboratory, and marketplace. Our

students not only excelled academically this past

year, but also brought their talents and energy to

our newly expanded athletic program and other

new student activities.

Our accomplishments also extended to Chicago’s

South Side community, where we partnered with

local organizations to better educate mathematics

and science teachers, supported development of

new, mixed-income housing, and provided

employment opportunities.

These achievements are everyday occurrences

here at IIT, because when so many bright

minds come together exciting things happen all

the time. So while the cover of this year’s report

highlights one of our incredible new buildings,

the theme, breaking new ground, is about how

people are making things happen every day—in

the classroom, the laboratory, and the community.

At IIT last year, it was business as usual—a lot of

hard work, moments of inspiration, invaluable

occasions of generosity, and the kinds of breakthrough

days that make all the rest worthwhile.

Here are some of the highlights.

As an IIT student nearly 60

years ago, I could not have

imagined the incredible

changes that would take

place over the ensuing


Looking at IIT’s physical campus alone,

there are only two buildings left from the

time I was a student. One thing that has not

changed, however, is the high-quality education

IIT provides, which takes place not only

within the classroom, but also through

research opportunities, interprofessional

projects, and important collaborations with

other outstanding institutions of higher


One of the biggest educational issues of the

past few years, and one which is certain to

remain an issue in coming years, is the

shortage of engineers being educated in the

United States. IIT is helping to reverse that

trend by providing an outstanding technical

education that also addresses the human side

of science. IIT’s architecture, humanities,

social sciences, law, psychology, design, and

other programs all benefit from this component,

as they prepare leaders who are able to

transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Over the past few years, IIT has experienced

an upward spiral of enrolling better students

who have attracted better faculty, who in

turn have attracted even stronger students.

This increased quality of talent, combined

with a safer, more beautiful campus, has

produced a more dynamic university.

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to

all who have volunteered their time, talents,

and financial resources to make IIT an institution

of which we can be extremely proud.

College of Science and Letters


Day in and day out, the colleges, institutes, and centers that

make up IIT perform the important work of advancing their

specialized fields of study and research; at the same time, they

share one common goal—to make life better.

In the Institute of Psychology, this has involved extensive

research on the rehabilitation of workers, while in Armour

College of Engineering researchers use engineering principles

to fabricate neuroprosthetic implants and develop new medical

imaging technology. In the College of Science and Letters,

improving the quality of life includes developing new methods

to obtain information from the Internet and offering classes in

multicultural communication, and at the Institute of Design it

often happens in a “Eureka!” moment in front of a poster filled

with action photos and notations about the ways in which people

and technology intersect.

The pages that follow provide their own snapshots of recent

progress, and create a composite picture of how people at IIT are

breaking new ground in significant ways every single day.

From macro- to nano-scale, IIT minds

are engineering new approaches to

critical global issues.

With Dean Hamid Arastoopour at the helm, Armour is

giving students a solid foundation in engineering principles

along with the context for understanding the

social, economic, and environmental issues that

impact their work.

A great deal of investigation involves collaboration

with government, industry, national laboratories, and

other universities. The following are Armour’s priority

research areas:

• The Energy and Sustainability Institute—identifying

research directions that will shape energy policy and

sustainability initiatives, improve energy efficiency,

ensure power reliability and security, minimize pollution,

and continue decarbonization of the global energy


• Bioengineering Programs—development of expanded

educational and research programs in biological

engineering and establishment of an imaging center

and a Center for Integrative Neuroscience and

Neuroengineering Center that capitalize on a strong

partnership with the University of Chicago.

• The Manufacturing Center—a coalition led by the

Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering

department to conduct research that will directly

assist the U.S. manufacturing industry.

• Nanotechnology—a joint effort between Armour

College, College of Science and Letters, and other

colleges and institutes at IIT to develop next generation

materials, and chemical and biological processes using

nanoscale science and technology.

The College of Science and Letters

(CSL) has been generating landmark

research that is benefiting the

environment as well as everyone

from elementary school children to

college students and cancer patients.

Safety in the Palms of Our Hands

Although only slightly larger than a penny, the

electronic sensor in the IIT ChemArray has

enormous potential. Created and tested by a

team of IIT scientists, this new sensing device

holds the potential for identifying dangerous

bacteria and dozens of other toxic agents in air,

water, and food.

Under the leadership of Dean F.R. McMorris, CSL

faculty and researchers are working at the molecular

level to reduce environmental waste and with the

public school system to help create highly qualified

science and mathematics teachers (2.2 million will

be needed over the next 10 years). The College is also

conducting research on how radiation can be better

harnessed to fight cancer, how globalization is

impacting communication and collaboration—in

essence, on a whole array of areas where possibilities

exist for improving people’s lives.

Students working in IIT’s Interprofessional Projects

program have recently created a novel way to contribute

to the greater good: they are creatively educating

their fellow undergraduates about the fundamentals

of financial responsibility with CreditSafe,

an “edutainment” game developed by students in conjunction

with the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office.

In outreach efforts, CSL has hosted Chinese students

in the Public Administration graduate program and

taught Taiwanese junior high students in the

Department of Mathematics and Science Education

summer program. CSL’s own students have been benefiting

from new efforts as well, including a new professional

master’s degree in Mathematical Finance, an

International Center for Sensor Science and

Engineering, and a Summer in Paris program.

appointments at IIT Research Institute and in the

department of Biological, Chemical and Physical Sciences.




Under the leadership of one of

Chicago’s most influential women,

the architectural world at IIT is

positively electric, with record

enrollment and faculty and students

who have received worldwide

attention for their designs.

It’s no wonder, then, that IIT’s architecture

program has been ranked among the top 15 in

the U.S. by Design Intelligence magazine.

This is especially fitting at a time when IIT is

celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the

national historic landmark S.R. Crown Hall as

well as receiving international acclaim for its

two newest buildings, The McCormick

Tribune Campus Center and State Street

Village residence hall.

To create architects who are prepared for

real-world practice in the twenty-first century,

the program emphasizes the study of innovative

architectural design and technology, including

emerging technologies such as tall building

design and sustainable design. And in the best

tradition of comprehensive training, studyabroad

programs in France, Asia, and Brazil

are allowing students to investigate architecture

in new physical and cultural settings.

of Law’s strategic decision to

enhance the quality of its student

body have been remarkable.

More than 4,200 potential students applied to

Chicago-Kent this year, including a record number of

honors scholar program applicants. This enhanced

student body has, in turn, attracted more world-class

faculty, who bring a wealth of experience and

knowledge to the classroom.

Chicago-Kent’s world-class faculty

members and alumni are making their

mark in their fields.

• As board chair and president, respectively, of

the federally funded Institute on Biotechnology

and the Human Future, professors Lori Andrew

and Nigel Cameron are leading discussions on

important biotechnology issues that will have a

significant impact on policy formulation.

• Anita Alvarez (’92), who won a 2002 professional

achievement award from IIT, was

recognized by Crain’s Chicago Business in 2003

as one of Chicago’s 100 most influential women.

This impressive growth in human resources has

allowed Chicago-Kent to expand its programmatic

offerings, including the additions of a six-year accelerated

J.D. program with UIC and a new summerabroad

program in Mexico City.

Another addition, the Illinois Technology Center for

Law & the Public Interest (ITC), is addressing the

needs of the larger community. Created by 12

partner organizations, the ITC is increasing access to

justice for low-income and disadvantaged persons

through the innovative use of technology to train,

support, and educate legal aid providers, pro bono

attorneys, and the public.

Partnering successfully with IIT Research Institute,

the College’s Institute for Science, Law &

Designing Good Business

ID has been building the case for a

closer link between design and business

strategy, and is planning a 2005

sequel to its successful HITS—Humans,

Interaction, Technology, Strategy—conference.

Speakers will present principles

and case studies of how to create offerings

that both address the total user

experience and are strategically important

to the companies that created them.

By embracing the onslaught of new

technology and using it to more

effectively address people’s needs,

the Institute of Design (ID) prepares

students who are changing

organizations through humancentered


And the world is taking note. ID has

garnered local, national, and international

attention for its activity-focused approach

to discovering how people interact with

products and within systems. A recent

Business Week magazine review

described ID’s approach as being at “the heart of

innovation,” citing it as a design program that helps

managers become great innovators. And a Forbes

magazine profile named ID Director Patrick

Whitney one of six 2004 tech trendsetters. “To

succeed at human-centered design,” says Whitney,

“is to understand not just how technology

works, but how people actually use it. You have

to pay attention to what people do, not just

what they say.”

ID’s success over the past year is also reflected in

the increasing number of corporate partnerships

with businesses seeking insights into strategic

design. These exciting new partnerships—with

companies such as Mattel, Texas Instruments,

Vocollect, and Wilton Industries—include

design exploration classes and workshops that

pair business savvy and design innovation—a

dynamic formula for generating promising new

design possibilities.

When the Department of Psychology

became a full-fledged Institute in 1995, it

was a calculated risk.

The payoff has been evident in the way the

Institute’s programs have been making the news

lately: the Rehabilitation Counseling program

was ranked 5th in 2004 by U.S. News & World

Report, and the Princeton Review’s Gourman

Report ranked the Industrial/Organization program

13th nationwide. Successful research into topics

such as adjustment to disability has contributed

to the program’s success.

And the faculty have been earning bragging

rights as well. This past year, Nambury Raju

was named co-investigator on a $330,000

National Science Foundation computer science

grant, and Tamara Sher, an expert therapist for

couples dealing with illness, was chosen by the

American Psychology Association to participate

in its Master’s training tapes series. Part of Sher’s

research involves how couples’ communication

can decrease cardiac risk.

Plans to capitalize on past and current successes

include building the Institute’s undergraduate

program, which could be done in part

through the addition of two faculty

chairs. Having these chairs would further

elevate the program’s stature and

provide additional support for program

graduate school


An exploration of how to better

align Stuart Graduate School of

Business with IIT’s technology

heritage has led to a reshaping of

the overall vision for this School.

One innovative result from this expanded

vision is the new, interdepartmental

Mathematical Finance program—

offered jointly with IIT’s Applied

Mathematics department and offering a

master’s degree.

Also crossing academic, and even geographic,

boundaries is Stuart’s

Environmental Management program, which takes

a strongly interprofessional approach—blending

business, law, and environmental engineering and science.

It has been ranked among the top accredited

business programs in the World Resources

Institute’s most recent survey; this was due in large

part to the program’s creative new projects—including

cooperative programs in India, Poland, and Mexico—

and its research of new management tools, such as

using Geographical Information Systems technology

to map and manage community assets.

Stuart also made it possible for students to participate

in internships in China, starting in Summer

2004; the first group traveled to Shanghai and

Beijing to study the general banking operation

system and the Chinese financial industry.

This expansion of Stuart’s programs is helping to

give students more global perspectives through experiencing

the dynamics of developing countries and the

tools to put into practice what they have learned.

The Center for Professional Development

(CPD) is meeting the changing needs of

working professionals—and thereby

preparing them for continued success—

through the latest in technology-oriented

education and training.

Conveniently scheduled classes and course

work designed to take professionals to the next

level have paid off in increased enrollment and

new programs. For example, CPD now offers

courses for professional engineers who are

required by the State of Illinois to update their

knowledge in order to maintain their licenses.

And the Manufacturing/Industrial programs

now feature specializations in Industrial

Facilities and Logistics. Another new initiative,

the Center’s Information Technology &

Management program, is becoming well-known

for its hands-on approach and encouragement

of student innovation.

In addition to helping professionals

advance their careers, the Center is

also assisting students who are completing

their undergraduate degrees at

Chicago-area community colleges by

helping them transition into degreecompletion

programs as well as pursue

master’s programs. CPD’s overarching

objective with both students and working

professionals alike is to provide them

with the best tools available to help

them advance.

The Jules F. Knapp Entrepreneurship

Center was made possible by a

$1 million gift from entrepreneur

Jules F. Knapp and matching funds

from university regents Robert A.

Pritzker and Robert W. Galvin.

The Institute of Business and

Interprofessional Studies (IBIS)

extends learning beyond the

classroom and provides students

with the tools they need to put

ideas to work.

Through IIT’s signature Interprofessional

Projects (IPRO) program, the university

has collaborated with more than two

dozen Chicago-area organizations, giving

students the opportunity to participate in

one or more of the 75 projects undertaken

during the year. Through these experiences,

students gain problem-solving

skills while tackling real-world technical

and business issues. Multidisciplinary

teams of students have worked on

such complex projects as developing

a non-invasive blood glucose monitor,

creating new cell phone technologies

and services, and shaping a business strategy for a

portable system that generates potable water and power.

“By participating in the IPRO program, our students

graduate with a unique portfolio of academic and practical

experiences that solidly prepares them for professional

success,” says IBIS Director Dennis Roberson.

IBIS is also providing students with leadership training

through the IIT Leadership Academy and its various

programs. Whether they are joining an existing company

or starting up their own—which they learn how to

do through IBIS’ Ed Kaplan Entrepreneurial Studies

Program—students are able to turn ideas into reality.

All of these initiatives are supported by IBIS’ core

academic offerings, with particular focus on the innovative

new undergraduate “Techno-Business” program.

Top left: As part of a new focus on service, the IPRO program is

increasing the number of collaborative projects conducted with

other non-profit and community organizations, such as this one

with the Museum of Science and Industry. Here, a student talks

with IPRO Director Tom Jacobius about her team’s prototype exhibit,

designed to show MSI visitors how blood-flow between mother and

fetus changes over time.

Now in its seventeenth year, the National

Center for Food Safety and Technology’s

(NCFST) successful consortium of academia,

government, and industry continues to

lead cutting-edge research on new food


Focusing on key food safety issues, the Center has

recently responded to international concern about

acrylamide, a potentially toxic chemical that

appears to be produced in foods that have been

cooked or processed at a high temperature. The

Center is also examining the safety of microwave

pasteurization of eggs and the use of ultraviolet light

to reduce pathogens in fruit juice, and is testing the

effects of various food-processing techniques on

food allergens.

To further ensure food safety, the Center offers a

course in “Security and Risk Management in the

Food Industry,” intended for food suppliers, processors,

and buyers who need help in developing a food

security program. Sections of the course focus on

key areas of concern: threat assessment; biological,

chemical, radiological, and physical agents; food

security prerequisite programs; and operational risk

management developed by the FDA.

NCFST researchers have also created a new database

to record the genetic sequences of food allergens and

pathogens, which will help scientists detect and identify

in food the presence of dangerous

organisms, such as E. coli and salmonella.

Research Outreach

IIT leadership conducted a first-ever

major outreach effort in Washington,

D.C., this past summer. Showcasing

more than a dozen cutting-edge IIT

research projects, this event increased

awareness of IIT among government

and scientific leaders and decision-makers.


After bringing in a record-breaking

$31 million in research funding, IIT faculty

are making extraordinary advances not

only in exploration and discovery, but also

in application.

Start-up companies based on IIT-developed

technology include the following:

• All Cell Technologies, LLC, enabling extension

of Li-ion batteries into transportation applications.

• Intranet Mediator, Inc., offering a solution to

finding information in large data warehouses.

• DEI Technologies, LLC, hoping to commercialize

IIT technology that enhances

the quality of medical imaging.

IIT has also signed research agreements

with companies interested in manufacturing

hybrid buses for the Indian

market and for improving movement

of railroad cars in switching yards; and

several companies are evaluating IIT’s

technology for recycling discarded

tires and plastic packaging material.

Typically, patenting a process or

invention is both time-consuming and

costly, but IIT has been able to make it

more cost-effective by using a student-staffed

law clinic and by having inventors clearly define

the value of their inventions to prospective users

before undertaking the patenting process.

From advancing biodefense

efforts to pioneering methods of

preventing and treating cancer, the

work being done at IIT Research

Institute (IITRI) is improving our

health, our work, our world.

Partnering with leading institutions

throughout the Midwest, IITRI scientists

will play an important role in the

new Great Lakes Regional Center of

Excellence for Biodefense and

Emerging Infectious Diseases

Research, which received $35 million

in funding from the National Institute of

Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

One of eight centers around the country, the

Great Lakes Center will be a multidisciplinary

hub where researchers will work together on

projects ranging from developing new vaccines

against anthrax, plague, smallpox, and Ebola

to designing advanced diagnostic approaches

for biodefense and for emerging diseases.

IITRI scientists are also at the forefront of

cancer research. In May 2004, IITRI received

$28 million in research funding from the

National Cancer Institute, which will be used to

study drugs for cancer diagnosis and therapy

and to identify and develop agents for prevention.

Natural Allies

Can a soy latte (or green tea) a day help

keep cancer away? IITRI scientists are

working to find out by studying the

chemopreventive properties of soybeans

and green tea in order to identify agents

that inhibit or reverse cancer cell growth.

commercial application of this technology in which brain images

are used to evaluate new pharmaceuticals such as antidepressants.

Within days of their opening, The

McCormick Tribune Campus

Center and State Street Village

changed the entire landscape of

campus life at IIT. Today, these

buildings, alive with students 24/7,

provide dynamic new spaces in

which to live, study, and play.

With enhanced dining options, a professionally

run bookstore, ample staff and community meeting

spaces, offices for student life—plus modern

technology ranging from computer stations to

computer-monitored laundry services—these

new buildings have sparked a renewed school

spirit seen throughout campus:

• The number of IIT students involved in varsity

sports has doubled over the past four years,

thanks to the leadership of new Athletic Director

Lee Hitchen and the introduction of varsity

women’s and men’s soccer teams.

• IIT students founded 25 new organizations last

year alone, including a Lacrosse Club, Model UN,

and Mock Trial team.

Preserving Our Heritage

As our new buildings continue to enhance

student life, IIT is working to preserve our historic

Mies van der Rohe-designed buildings.

Leading this effort is the Mies van der Rohe

Society, which is committed to restoring Mies’ IIT

buildings to their original beauty and repurposing

them to support cutting-edge academic programs.

• The Campus Center has served as a gathering

place for dozens of activities—many of which

saw record participation last year—including the

Taste of IIT, Homecoming Week, the Student

Organization Fair, and Alumnifest.

Bottom right: AIA award-winning architect Helmut Jahn’s

State Street Village provides state-of-the-art living for more

than 360 students, close proximity to classrooms, easy

access to the elevated train, and breathtaking views of the

Chicago skyline.


Through example and action, IIT is

providing the impetus to create a

safer and more vibrant neighborhood

around its Main Campus.

One high-impact, long-range initiative involves

IIT helping to create stronger schools, one

teacher at a time, through a customized professional

development program that educates

Chicago Public School master teachers of high

school mathematics and science. Program

graduates will go on to serve as leaders in their

schools and districts.

Planning Success

The City of Chicago recognized IIT’s leadership

in the South Side community by presenting the

university with the prestigious 2003 Burnham

Award for Excellence in Planning. Award

presenters lauded IIT’s innovative Main

Campus Master Plan for its efforts to stimulate

revitalization of the surrounding community as

well as improve IIT’s campus infrastructure.

A project with immediate benefits is IIT’s

tutoring program for students in Bronzeville

and other neighboring communities. As an

integral part of this effort, IIT students are

volunteering at various community activities,

neighborhood churches, and other

non-profit organizations.

IIT is also demonstrating its commitment to the

neighboring community through an employerassisted

housing program: the university will

help employees become homeowners in Park

Boulevard, a new 1,200-unit development of

condos, townhouses, and single-family homes

along State Street from 35th to 39th streets.

One teacher, one student, one resident at a time,

IIT, in partnership with its neighbors, is helping

to create a more vibrant South Side community.

Total Freshmen and Transfer Students

The university’s financial results for fiscal year 2004 reflect continued strengthening of the institution’s

financial base as IIT continues to follow a disciplined operating plan to ensure academic

excellence as well as financial stability.

Total assets increased by $21 million to $541 million, primarily the result of additional investment in

facilities. IIT’s endowment reached a record level of $224 million, benefiting from improved market

conditions, added contributions, and the sale of IIT Research Institute (IITRI) assets. Endowment

performance was very strong with an investment return of 18.6%, more than 5% higher than the

NACUBO average. Longer-term annual returns of 9.7% remain strong.

The increase in physical properties includes the opening of the new, widely acclaimed McCormick

Tribune Campus Center at a cost of $55.4 million. Renovations of laboratories and athletic facilities

also enhanced the IIT student experience. And, at the cutting edge of student housing design, is IIT’s

new Helmut Jahn-designed State Street Village. This 367-bed residence hall is owned and financed

by the State Street Village Corporation, an independent 501(c)(3) corporation.

New Graduate Students

2002 765 students

2003 748 students

2004 842 students

Revitalization of IIT’s surrounding neighborhood continues at a brisk pace and Park Boulevard, a

new, mixed-income community, will soon rise at the corner of State and 35th streets. The university is

providing financial assistance to employees to enable them to buy units in the new development.

Coming on the heels of the successful Michigan Place townhouse and condominium development,

Park Boulevard will represent another major step in the transformation of the neighborhood.

Net tuition revenue grew by 8% to $65.3 million with the endowment providing an additional $18 million

to support operating activities. Undergraduate enrollment grew by 8% and is expected to reach

2,500 by the end of the decade. Overall, university enrollment now totals 6,167.


Total Chicago-Kent Enrollment

2002 1083 students

2003 1086 students

2004 1174 students

The reorganized IITRI focused on life sciences research and showed continued growth, helping to

bring the university’s total research volume to more than $50 million. Life sciences growth is part of

the university operating plan and includes development of a research park on the southern end of

campus. This growth in enrollment and research is propelling IIT into the twenty-first century—

ensuring that we will continue to transform lives and invent the future.
