00:28Copy video clip URL Dennis Hull begins speaking, recounting an anecdote about a hockey game at Maple Leaf Gardens, where 17,000 people were in attendance to watch he and Team Canada play.

01:29Copy video clip URL Hull talks about his job in the context of raising money for the Illinois Institute of Technology as the Athletic Director, and how some of the people from his hockey career that he’s kept in contact with have helped him in that regard. He states that one of his motivations for raising money is that the athletes of the school do not have the necessary equipment that they require. “Our athletes deserve to have the things that they don’t have.”

02:30Copy video clip URL Hull states that what bothers him the most about the lack of funding for the school is that they are sending off students into the real world that will have real input in society, who are not receiving adequate equipment. He explains that because of this fact, he is compelled to raise money for the school.

02:52Copy video clip URL Hull recalls a few people and companies, such as former teammate Keith Magnuson and 7-Eleven, that have been instrumental in the fundraising process. “It’s not a lot that they give, but when you don’t have anything, every little bit helps.”

03:53Copy video clip URL Hull discusses the fact that the student athletes at IIT understand the monetary situation of the school, and do their best to raise funds for the school on their own.

04:06Copy video clip URL Hull explains that a major component of his job as the Athletic Director for IIT is to raise money for the Athletic Department. “That is a big part of my job, trying to secure funds for our kids.”

04:14Copy video clip URL Hull speaks of the independent financial responsibility of the school’s athletes, citing the basketball and baseball teams as examples. The school’s basketball team, Hull explains, is going to Florida for a tournament, having funded all of the money to get there themselves, and the baseball team will also be going on a Spring trip to Florida, using money they’ve raised on their own as well.

04:30Copy video clip URL The school’s sports teams, Hull says, are doing very well in their respective divisions and leagues. The volleyball team, with a record of 31-6, will be going to the divisional finals. “We can compete in volleyball with anyone.”
