Jonathan is Director of Industry Engagement at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA (about 50 miles north of Philadelphia), joining the Office of Economic Engagement in December 2015. Before heading out East, he was Associate Director of Corporate Engagement at Northwestern University. As a native Chicagoan, Jonathan found his way back to the north side of the city after graduating from the University of Iowa with a B.A. in Communications. Though he began his career at Northwestern in 2007 as a temp in Gift & Record Services, and then full time with the Alumni Clubs Team, he entered the profession of Corporate Relations in 2012. Jonathan has been a member of NACRO since then, and without the organization's annual conference would not have discovered the opportunity at Lehigh. Fascinated and inspired by the world of academia, he enjoys the many chances to learn something new and contribute to the big picture.
