A Warm Welcome Back to Regina’s New Leadership Institute Director,  Julie Koenigsberger!

A Warm Welcome Back to Regina’s New Leadership Institute Director,  Julie Koenigsberger!

It has been three years since Ms. Julie Koenigsberger taught at Regina. Now, Ms. Koenigsberger returns to Regina Dominican as the Director of the Leadership Institute.

Ms. Koenigsberger’s educational history is quite impressive. Ms. Koenigsberger earned her bachelor’s degree in English through the Honors Program at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She continued her education and received a master’s degree in Public Administration on a full Rotary International Foundation academic-leadership scholarship from the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. 

Leadership is definitely something Ms. Koenigsberger is an expert at. She was the Director of the University of Illinois at Chicago Wellness Center , which provides support for student learning, academic success, and retention. Then, she moved into the Chancellor’s Office as chief writer and special program management. Through this, Ms. Koenigsberger was able to secure for the university, the Daley Papers Collection, Maxwell Street expansion, a campus-wide no-smoking policy, and infused wellness curriculum into several UIC courses. 

In 2019, she taught Presentational Speaking at Regina for the fall semester and has experience teaching on the college level. 

Ms. Koenigsberger likes teaching because as she says, “I enjoy connecting ideas and concepts to what is relevant to students and making advancing knowledge fun  especially in areas that are important for leadership development.”

This time at Regina, Ms. Koenigsberger is helping shape Regina’s students into innovative leaders.

Ms. Koenigsberger said,  “My hybrid role of administrator-teacher allows me to make full use of my professional background, skills, and interests! Working with the students at Regina in 2019 convinced me that I would like to consider moving to high school work.”

Outside of work, Ms. Koenigsberger can be found on the pickleball court. She also enjoys music, theater, lectures, and participating in civic projects.  Ms. Koenigsberger is the cofounder of the North Branch Trail Alliance which plans cycling events that bring businesses and cultural events together.

Regina is glad to have such an accomplished role model and educator as a part of our community.

I'm a senior at Regina Dominican and a new staff member of the Crown. I am involved in the bowling team, National Honor Society, and Par-Tea Club. In my free time, I like to binge-watch shows and learn about skincare. I love baking and spending time with my friends as well. I'm thinking about majoring in business management or marketing. Some fun facts about me are that I have two dogs and my favorite band is Greta Van Fleet.
