Only a few people may recognize Ida Schick from her time in the classroom. Right now, it’s limited to a handful of classes, including Ethical Issues in Health Care. But she’s been a part of so much at the University for the past 13 years, almost everyone has been impacted by her work. They just may not know it.
“I have a complexity of responsibilities,” Schick says.
While primarily serving as chair of the graduate program in health services administration, Schick has also had a hand in recruiting, orientation of new students, accreditation, curriculum review and revision, student mentoring, hiring and course scheduling. And those are just the highlights.
She’s also landed herself on a staggering list of University committees—something she enjoys.
“I have had the privilege of being the chair of the Jesuit Identity Committee,” says Schick. “I worked with a truly compassionate, caring and competent group of faculty, staff, students and administrators on that team.”
She says she finds the same qualities in the team members of Xavier’s United Way Campaign, which she is chairing this year as well.
