Sayonara, Sahli!

Ellen Sahli will be leaving her position at the University to work for the Chicago Housing Authority.

After two years at the University, Ellen Sahli, Assistant Vice President for Civic Engagement, is leaving her post to return to Chicago city government. In an e-mail, Sahli announced that she will become the Chief Housing Officer at the Chicago Housing Authority, having previously served as Deputy Housing Commissioner for the City of Chicago’s Department of Community Development.

During her time here, Sahli mostly managed projects on and around campus. One such project was the “Woodlawn Avenue Plan,” which specified the University’s intentions for each of its properties on the 5700 block of South Woodlawn.

In the announcement, Sahli stated that William W. Towns, assistant Vice President of Neighborhood Initiatives, will navigate the transition.

“[Mr. Towns] will continue the many community engagement initiatives that we have started in recent times including posting on our ‘Behind the News’ webpage and community discussions on proposed projects,” she said.
