Initially, he worked on INFAC –The Instrumented Factory for Gears– where he was liaison with high schools and colleges and wrote and produced short videos on deburring gears. Field helped initiate a 2+2+2 program for INTM, an innovative academic career path that allowed high school students who enrolled in shop classes and technical studies to gain admission to a community college and transfer to IIT’s INTM program for a bachelor’s degree.
Prior to joining IIT, Field was a newspaper reporter. He was on staff for Lerner Newspapers, and completed several assignments at the Chicago Sun-Times.
Field is a U.S. Army Veteran. He has taught “American Battle Strategy for the Army ROTC and is currently serving as an Ambassador of the U.S. Department of Defense for the Korean War 60th Anniversary events. He was awarded a “coin of appreciation” from the Consul General of Korea in Washington, D.C. at the memorial ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. He was also the Veterans Representative at the recent dedication of the Korean Museum in Skokie, Illinois.
In addition to his assignments at IIT, Field has been a consultant to manufacturers for several decades mainly concerned with marketing, sales and operations. He is also working with a local community college to develop a feeder programs in Supply Chain Management as part of a federal STEM grant.
