A personal message from College of DuPage President Dr. Robert L. Breuder

Dear Neighbors,

We usually tell stories in this publication about the impact our programs and our college as a whole make on this community and the world beyond. 

But sometimes, impact is more personal: One teacher challenging one student. Opening a mind to new ideas. Helping someone discover a different perspective. Encouraging individual expression. Showing that there is, in fact, an alternative course past some barrier. Urging someone on to try and
try again.

The beauty of personal impact is its ripple effect. Each student we touch has the potential to benefit a family, a community, a workplace, the nation and the world. The mentor affects the protégé. The protégé affects others. The building blocks sustain themselves for generations. 

One of my teachers had this kind of impact on me. Were it not for him, I would not be here serving you and our community. Many of our COD staff and faculty members have a similar impact on their students. 

In addition to building skills and expanding knowledge, mentorship is the best way I know to touch the lives of those who entrust their educations to College of DuPage. All of us at COD are grateful to you for that opportunity. 

Sincerely,

Robert L. Breuder

Dr. Robert L. Breuder
President, College of DuPage
