James AndrewsWe are saddened by the passing of Dr. James Andrews, Professor Emeritus in the Communicative Disorders program at NIU. Serving as Department Chair, Clinic Director, professor, and clinician, Jim had a strong influence on the program and leaves behind a lasting legacy of Family Based Treatment in the Northern Illinois region. He was a model for how to be an empathetic clinician, teacher and colleague; empowering so many students and families to reach their goals. Since retiring, Jim and his wife, Mary, have been living in the Portland Oregon area surrounded by family and friends. He will be missed.
