Illinois agricultural education friends and colleagues,

The purpose of my message is to share with you that I have moved to a new position in the College of ACES at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Beginning today, I am starting a new appointment as Director for Learning Innovation and E-Learning in the College of ACES. My primary responsibilities will be focused on growing and creating new educational initiatives for ACES and Extension, along with supporting faculty and programs in the College.

All questions related to the Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communications (ALEC) Program at large should be directed to Dr. David Rosch (, Program Director. Questions related to the Agricultural Education (teacher licensure) concentration should be directed to Mr. Gary Ochs (, Instructor. Questions related to the online master’s degree should be directed to Dr. V. Chunoo (, Assistant Professor.  

To my former students who are now teachers – thank you for helping me be a better educator. I’ve learned as much from you as you’ve learned from me. My greatest reward has been watching you grow into the teacher you have the potential to become. 

To all agriculture teachers and FFA advisors – thank you for giving me a chance, and thank you for supporting agricultural education at the University of Illinois. You are an essential source of support for your students; they are watching and learning from you each day. Thank you for devoting time, energy, and heart to your students and to your chosen profession. 

With much appreciation,

Debra Korte
