Meet the Officers

  • Truong (Jack) Luu, President, has been studying at Heartland for two years. In addition to being a full-time student at Heartland Community College and a part-time graduate student at Illinois State University, he is working as a Master Tutor at Tutoring Services and as an Office Assistant in the Student Engagement Office. The main priority of his presidency will be to increase student participation in campus activities. He will have an open-door policy, so students can voice their opinions. This approach has been successful with the International Students Association (ISA) where he increased membership from 2 to 50 members within a year. Jack is fascinated by fine tea, new technologies, and philosophy. On the weekend, you might find him in a coffeeshop in town, where he enjoys reading.
