    This year's Communicator of the Year is someone who exemplifies the qualities we think make strong leaders in sharing the Illinois story of excellence. Service, innovation, advancement and excellence. This year’s winner is Tracy McCabe from the College of Business.

    Under Tracy’s leadership, the College of Business has been a campus leader in marketing and branding efforts, setting a standard for professionalism, creativity and measurability.

    His goals are focused, he uses resources more effectively and efficiently than just about anyone, anywhere…and he is a market leader in trying new ways to deliver our message of excellence.

    Whether it’s attracting more students, reconnecting with alums, creating a mobile app for the campus, thanking donors or responding to a crisis, Tracy approaches his responsibilities head on – all business and all results oriented.

    Tracy is there when we need his wisdom, and he reaches out to us and his Chief Communications Officer colleagues whenever he and his team have something to offer. He is one of our go-to CCOs, and we want to show our gratitude with this year’s Communicator of the Year award.
