Announcements

COVID update: One new case identified through last week’s on-campus PCR testing.

Dear campus community,

As we mentioned in previous campus communication, the COVID-19 dashboard is now updated every Tuesday and Friday. At this writing, we have 7 students in isolation with COVID (4 on campus and 3 off campus) and we have 8 students in quarantine (2 on campus and 6 off campus).  

While I have your attention, I’d like to take a moment to thank the staff in Health & Wellness, Residence Life, Public Safety, Facilities Management, Aramark, Parkhurst Dining, Athletics, Conference Operations and Events, Human Resources, and Information Technology Services for their work to prepare for isolation and quarantine cases on- and off-campus. It takes a village and there are so many people working hard behind the scenes; thank you!

As always, we will continue to update campus as the situation warrants. Thank you for your continued efforts to keep our community safe.

Andrea

New Vice President for Advancement named: Shawn Vogen to join Lake Forest College community on December 1.

Dear Faculty, Students, and Staff,

I am very pleased to announce the successful conclusion of the College’s search for a new Vice President for Advancement and Secretary of the College.  Shawn M. Vogen, PhD, has accepted my offer to assume this key leadership position and will join the College on December 1.  Our search attracted numerous highly qualified candidates, and Shawn’s experience, preparation, and commitment to the College made him our clear first choice.  I will be delighted to welcome him as a new colleague.

For the past two years Shawn has served as Associate Vice President and Philanthropic Counsel for BWF, a national philanthropic consulting firm based in Minneapolis.  From 2015 to 2020, he worked at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago where, as Associate Vice President, he led a development team that secured multiple seven and eight-figure gifts to support the research, education, and patient care mission. From 2004 to 2015, Shawn served in increasingly responsible positions for the Medical Center and Health Sciences Division of Loyola University Chicago.  As Loyola’s Assistant Vice President and Associate Dean, Health Sciences Division, he led development, alumni relations, communication, corporate and foundation relation teams that raised substantial support for education, research, and student scholarships.

A 1993 graduate of Saint Olaf College, where he majored in chemistry, Shawn proceeded to earn a doctoral degree in biochemistry and molecular biology from the University of Nebraska Medical Center.  He and his wife, Kristin Carlson Vogen, Senior Director of Philanthropic Services for the Chicago Community Trust, live in River Forest and are the parents of Bjorn, a 2021 graduate of Saint Olaf; Kaitlin, a current junior at the University of Vermont; and Mara, a sophomore at Oak Park and River Forest High School. 

Shawn is a strong believer in liberal arts colleges and the breadth and depth of the education our students receive.  He is eager to join our campus community, lead our talented staff in Development and Alumni Relations (DAR), and raise funds to support our mission and priorities.  Based on the goals that emerge from this year’s strategic planning groups, Shawn will help develop and implement the effective fundraising plans we will need to support those important goals.

I thank my administrative colleagues; faculty members Shubhik DebBurman, Siobhan Moroney, and Rob Lemke; members of our Board of Trustees; Associate Vice President Kim Weidner-Feigh and DAR staff who interviewed candidates and helped produce Shawn’s appointment.  Kim Weidner-Feigh deserves great thanks, moreover, for skillfully leading DAR this past year.

Please join me in warmly welcoming Shawn Vogen to Lake Forest College. 

Stephen D. Schutt
President
