BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – An alumna of Illinois Wesleyan University has been selected to fill the position of Registrar. Leslie Betz will begin her duties on July 1, taking over for Jeffrey Frick, who has been named the dean and academic vice president at St. Norbert College, De Pere, Wis.
Betz joins Illinois Wesleyan after serving as the associate dean of the graduate school at Bradley University in Peoria, Ill.
After graduating from Illinois Wesleyan in 1993, Betz continued her education at Illinois State University (ISU), where she earned a master’s degree in business administration and a doctorate in educational administration.
Her career in higher education has included serving as the coordinator of development at Heartland Community College in Normal, and as the academic advisor and coordinator for the M.B.A Program at ISU. During her tenure at Bradley, she assisted in the development of new graduate programs such as the professional master’s degree of arts in “STEM” (science, technology, engineering, and math) education, and the master’s degree of science in quantitative finance.
“We look forward to welcoming Leslie back to her alma mater,” said Illinois Wesleyan Provost and Dean of the Faculty Beth Cunningham. “She has worked closely with chairs, the Registrar’s Office, students and faculty in her previous positions.”
Betz, a resident of Carlock, Ill., remains active with Illinois Wesleyan, and is a member of the IWU McLean County Regional Alumni Board.
