Lewis U. Aviation Program Impresses U.S. Representative
U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Chicago, a senior member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, toured Lewis University in Romeoville, meeting with Brother James Gaffney, president, Provost Stephany Schlachter and Chair of the Department of Aviation William Brogan, as well as students and other faculty.
I greatly enjoyed this opportunity to sit down with Lewis University’s leadership and discuss the university’s strengths, goals, and needs,” Lipinski said.
“As Northeastern Illinois’ most senior member of the transportation and infrastructure committee and a member of the subcommittee on aviation, I was especially pleased to be able to tour Lewis University Airport and the university’s aviation facilities, meeting with students and faculty.
“America’s aviation system faces a host of challenges, from security to on-time performance. Lewis’ aviation program is helping ensure we have the workforce we need to meet those challenges, and I applaud its efforts,” he said.
As chairman and currently as a ranking member of the Research and Science Education subcommittee, Lipinski has played a leading role in the effort to strengthen science, technology, engineering and math education at the university level through the America Competes Act and its reauthorization.
