Chicago, IL

Charles R. “Chuck” Middleton currently serves as Treasurer for the SAGE Board of Directors. Dr. Middleton has had a long and distinguished career in higher education, currently serving as Roosevelt University’s fifth president. For 40+ years, he has taught more than 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students, written nearly 100 scholarly and public policy papers, and authored the book The Administration of British Foreign Policy, 1782–1846.

When Dr. Middleton came to Roosevelt in 2002, he joined a University with a rich, proud history and powerful story to tell. He embraced the quest to elevate Roosevelt’s image, and higher education in general, and advance its position as a distinguished institution with the principles, vision and tools to prepare students for meaningful roles as leaders in their professions and communities.

In addition to his commitment and work in higher education, Dr. Middleton’s dedication to community engagement, including advocacy for inclusiveness, social justice, and LGBT rights, is evidenced by his many professional and civic commitments. He serves on the Board of Governors of the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute in Hyde Park, N.Y., the Boards of Directors of the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), the LGBT Center on Halsted (where he is Board Vice Chair), the Point Foundation Board of Governors, and the Chicago History Museum Community Advisory Council. In 2011, he joined the Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) Board of Directors and the Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) Board of Directors.  He currently is a member of the Commission on Inclusion of the American Council on Education (ACE) in Washington, DC, and Co-Chair of the LGBTQ Presidents in Higher Education.

Dr. Middleton and his partner of 31 years, Professor John S. Geary, currently live in Chicago and have 5 children and 4 grandchildren.  He is a family man with a passion for cooking, fishing, and international travel.
