Luke recently oversaw the Illinois Tech Global Leaders Program, a leadership development and college access program for Chicago-area high school students, where he directed fundraising, strategic planning, and curriculum development, in addition to managing the program team.
He holds an M.S. in Special Education from Hunter College in New York City, where he taught high school special education, physics and biology in Brooklyn and the Bronx.
