Betz Named New Registrar
June 8, 2010
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.
