I started the MSN program in August of 2019 and have had such a great experience thus far so I thought I would share my testimonial to Benedictine University's MSN program! Benedictine University and its MSN faculty have been nothing short of supportive of their students during this surreal and trying time. I am so grateful to be attending a university that cares so much about the success of their students as well as their health and safety.

I am so honored to join the Benedictine University Community. BenU owns such a rich history and a proud legacy of educating those in need for the greater good of humanity. I hope to serve all alumni in the same spirit of community fostered by the Benedictine Monks who, in 1887, founded what was then St. Procopius College, later grew to become IBC and has become the great institution we know as Benedictine University.
I invite you to get involved! Attend an alumni event, volunteer to be a mentor to current students or support Benedictine University scholarships or the mission fund. Whatever your method of support, the lasting impact on students’ lives is indeed priceless. I look forward to meeting or speaking to you, in one way or another, very soon.
God bless you all and God bless BenU!

2020 Rising Star
AYAYI AYITE holds a dual M.P.H./M.B.A. from Benedictine University which he received in 2017. He received a B.S. in Management and Economics from University of Poitier in France and is a Certified Medical Laboratory Scientist. He is currently focusing on strengthening his competencies and practical skills in epidemiology and surveillance, data analysis, monitoring and evaluation, with the professional goal of becoming a global health expert in these areas. Ayayi Ayite is a current Epidemiology and Surveillance Fellow with the Public Health Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the Center for Global Health, Division of Global HIV and Tuberculosis at C.D.C. Headquarters. As a native French speaker, he supports Population-Based HIV Impact Assessment (P.H.I.A.) projects in various Francophone countries including Haiti, Burundi, DRC, Cameroon, Cote D’Ivoire and Botswana. In this role, he develops study protocols, survey materials, and standard operation procedures. He also provides data analysis support and in-country technical assistance to implementing partners, including training to field workers, and monitoring of project progress. Ayayi’s interest in Epidemiology began with a yearlong volunteering experience with the Office of Epidemiology and Statistics of the Dekalb County Board of Health, where he acquired basic practical knowledge in epidemiology, surveillance, and infectious disease case management and control. At the Dekalb County Board of Health, he investigated Hepatitis C cases from the Refugees’ Health program which played a key role in deciding to pursue a career in global health epidemiology. For the past five years, he has worked as a medical technologist in hospital laboratory settings, including Grady Memorial Hospital and WellStar Atlanta Medical Center. His outstanding work and love of the laboratory has led to his role as PRN Laboratory Supervisor at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta while in the Fellowship.
"I am truly grateful, and I want to express my sincerest gratitude to Benedictine University and the M.P.H. faculty for providing me with the competencies, required academic knowledge and the tools that help me build my professional self-confidence enabling me to be highly competitive on the public health job market. I will not make it to the C.D.C. without my M.P.H. degree. I feel so honored and happy to be a Rising Star Award winner at Benedictine University! My special thoughts to Dr. Susan Cheng who has been a real mentor and an inspiration! Thanks! Thanks! and thanks Benedictine University!”

Many of our alumni are also looking for ways to give back to their alma mater through volunteer opportunities. Money may be tight, but sharing a little of your time will go a long way!
Annual Giving support through direct mail, phonathon, online, faculty/staff giving and other programs are vital for Benedictine University's most immediate needs. While your contribution can be directed to a specific academic department, scholarship, athletic department or building campaign, we also appreciate gifts to either our General Scholarship Fund or the Benedictine Fund.
