Brian BishopBrian Bishop (‘02, ’04) was recently named the President of the Lewis University National Alumni Association. Bishop currently serves as a consultant for Bishop, Levin & Wronski, Inc., a legal search firm that specializes in recruiting intellectual property attorneys.

“I am honored and privileged to serve as President of the Lewis University Alumni Association. I am very excited to work with my fellow board members to represent nearly 32,000 graduates of Lewis University,” said Bishop.

“I wanted to give back to Lewis and become more involved so I joined the National Alumni Association as a board member in 2008,” Bishop said. “The Board is comprised of men and women who bring diverse skills and want to help move Lewis University forward,” Bishop explains. His main goals for the National Alumni Association are building recognition for the association and expanding upon the alumni career networks, given that nearly 80% of Lewis Alumni live in the Chicagoland area.

Bishop started his academic career at Lewis like many others, working full time and commuting. “The satellite campuses are excellent for working adults and were convenient for my busy schedule. Most schools cannot offer that convenience,” Bishop added.

Bishop is excited about the recent expansion of the satellite campuses and the continued improvements at the main campus in Romeoville. “It is great to see Lewis University in Chicago at the De La Salle location; I drive by the Chicago campus all the time and am so impressed with the growth. The new Science building addition underway on the main campus in Romeoville is the biggest campus construction project I can remember.”

As President of the National Alumni Association, Bishop represents the alumni to the current student body and young alumni network. Bishop says, “I advise both students and young alumni to always do their best because it translates into personal success. A first job out of college might not immediately be what a new Lewis graduate is looking for, but work ethic and drive can ensure success.”
