Readers of the recent issue of our UIS Alumni magazine (and regular followers of news on the UIS website) know all about the "Bacon Brownie," a delicious treat that has been developed by entrepreneurs and UIS grads Clay Evers and Drew Stevens. The Bacon Brownie is now sold in convenience stores in Illinois (like the Quick-n-Easy outlets) and hopefully will be available in many more locations soon. I took some Bacon Brownies with me to China this past week and presented one to each president of our partner universities. This a a photo of me presenting Dr. Liu Yubin, president of Dalian Nationalities University, with his very own Bacon Brownie. The message? A UIS Business degree prepares you well for innovation and success!! The Bacon Brownie was a big hit and I like to think I'm doing my part to promote this innovative alumni product.
