This week the College of ACES is saying “Best Wishes” to a very familiar member of our family. Barry Dickerson joined the College of ACES Office of Advancement in 1996 and has been making a lasting impact on students, faculty, staff and the entire ACES family for the past two decades.

Many have come to easily recognize Barry as a professional representative of the College of ACES. From his work with individual supporters of the College of ACES to his more recent role in corporate relations, he has worked diligently to ensure that the most pressing needs of the College and even the people of Illinois were met. Barry has not always been one to stand in the lime-light, but for years he has served as a steady link in the background working on details of millions of dollars in gifts, grants and contracts that manifest in to the reality of what people see publicly.

Barry won’t be going far! He will be heading back to where he earned his undergraduate degree in the University of Illinois College of Business to serve as the Senior Director of Corporate Relations. Although he may not be sitting in Mumford Hall anymore, he’ll always be a part of our ACES family.
