Position: Administrative Assistant

Department: College of Nursing

Linda Delort started as a temporary worker at UIC in 1969 but has eventually become a full-time administrative assistant in the College of Nursing. She has worked on campus for 26 years and has enjoyed her time here because she is able to take on as much responsibility as she can handle. Although she is extremely active on campus, she ensures she spends time with her family. She especially likes to read or spend time with her nieces and nephews.

I was raised to believe that if you’re going to do a job, do it well.
