Jerome Phillips is currently the Secretary for MGEF. He graduated from Augustana College in 1983 with a Bachelor’s Degree in (Political Science and Minor in Business Administration). He has been a part of the Behavioral Health field for the past 23 years. Mr. Phillips currently is the Psychiatric Care Coordinator at Mount Sinai Hospital located in Chicago Illinois. (6 years) I personally experienced academic challenges early in my career at Augustana. Those challenges included learning how to study, what to study, and time management. Your college experience involves becoming acclimated to a great deal of freedom which I took for granted thinking that I would have time to catch up, but I found myself catching up until I graduated.
The journey toward achieving your bachelor’s is the reward, for the task completed. Reflecting back on the challenges, successes, and relationships are what make the journey the reward. The diploma is the icing on the cake!! I completed my Masters Degree in 18 months and earned a GPA of 3.82, the path was paved by my Augustana experiences!!!
