Remembering Wheaton’s Christopher Mitchell

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the unexpected death of Chris Mitchell, Wheaton professor and Director of the Marion E. Wade Center from 1994-2013. He also served as an adjunct at Trinity, and was much loved by many members of the TIU community.

A memorial service for Chris will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, July 18 at the Wheaton Bible Church, 27w500 North Avenue, West Chicago, IL. The visitation will be from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Remodel in Business Office & Human Resources Suite

In order to accommodate the merger of Financial Aid and Student Accounting departments into Student Financial Services, a remodel of the current Business Office and Human Resources space within the ATO chapel is underway. Upon completion of this remodel, all current Student Accounting and Financial Aid employees will be housed in the current Business Office area as Student Financial Services. This merger is anticipated to increase efficiency between areas that work closely together.

To complete this remodel, Facility Services will be working diligently for 3-4 weeks to create this space. All current Business office and Human Resources employees will be temporarily located as follows:

  • Student Accounting will relocate to the lower level of the chapel building, room LL36, as of Friday, May 16th.
  • Business Office personnel will relocate to the LEW Center, room 123, as of Monday, May 19th.
  • Human Resources will be located in the LEW Center, room 105, as of Monday, May 19th.

Note that during these renovations, quarter (25¢) rolls will only be available at Mail Services. Student Accounting will be unable to provide quarter rolls.

Thank you for your patience throughout this transition. All departments will remain open and operating at full service capacity during this displacement. Please feel free to stop by our temporary locations.
