Dear Members of the Campus Community:

I am pleased to announce that Allan M. Stratman will be our next Director of Facilities at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Mr. Stratman is a captain in the U.S. Navy and the executive officer of the Navy Facilities Engineering Command, Southwest. He is an experienced and proven leader with a long record of accomplishments and public service. He will be retiring from the Navy after 27 years of military service.

In his current job, which he has held since 2011, Mr. Stratman is based in San Diego and is responsible for overseeing public works, capital improvements, real estate and planning, facilities and utilities management, and environmental services supporting 20 Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force installations in six Southwestern states.

Mr. Stratman earned a bachelor's degree in civil engineering at South Dakota State University, a master's in geotechnical engineering at the University of Texas and is a registered professional engineer in California.

His appointment, pending approval of the U. of I. Board of Trustees at its July 25 meeting in Chicago, takes effect Sept. 3.

I would also like to thank outgoing director Jack Dempsey, who has been in charge of Facilities and Services (F&S) since 1999. He will continue as F&S director until Sept. 2 and will then become associate director for sustainable environment within the Center for Sustainable Environment.

Jack has led F&S during a period of great technological evolution and always has been responsive to the needs of the campus, from seeing to it that our buildings and grounds were maintained, our streets and sidewalks cleared, our grounds mowed, to keeping our classrooms clean and safe. He also has been at the forefront of sustainability efforts on our campus.

Please join me in welcoming Allan Stratman to the Illinois family.


Phyllis M. Wise
