Dr. John Baldwin Leadership Award Fund

The Dr. John Baldwin Leadership Award recognizes student leaders who demonstrate a commitment to the University, their peers, and their own education. Founding donor, Matthew Klusas, graduated from Illinois State University with a B.S. in public relations summa cum laude with honors in 2003. He created this award in honor of Dr. John Baldwin, a professor in the School of Communication, who like many of his colleagues, teaches students the value of scholarship and charity in service to the university community. Dr. Baldwin was instrumental in helping Matt get accepted to study at Magdalen College of the University of Oxford, where he was inspired to start the debating tradition with Lambda Pi Eta upon his return to Illinois State University.
