Forstall, James

James Forstall was one of the first employees at Sangamon State University when it opened in 1970 as a new type of institution, designed to be innovative and progressive in its approach to higher education. By 1974, Forstall had moved to Lincoln Land Community College, also in Springfield, early in that institution's history as well. He served as the Vice President of Student Affairs, working closely with the school's president, Robert Poorman. He also served as the Associate Director for Academic Affairs at the Illinois Board of Higher Education, and became very active in many civic organizations around the Springfield area.   ​
