Heartland V.P. Minter takes position at Waubonsee College

April 16, 2020

Heartland Community College Vice President of Business Services and Institutional Effectiveness Doug Minter has accepted a position at Waubonsee Community College.

Minter will start his position as Vice President of Finance and Administration at the Sugar Grove, Illinois community college in May of this year.

Minter currently oversees Heartland's finances and general business operations. In addition, he is responsible for Human Resources, campus facilities, technology and strategic planning.

“Doug has been a cornerstone at Heartland since the College opened and his loss will be significant,” said Heartland President Keith Cornille. “We will be conducting a national search to fill the vacancy of Vice President of Business Services and Institutional Effectiveness. I say ‘fill the vacancy’ as we all know that we can never replace Doug and all that he has meant to the Heartland.”

Minter began his career at Heartland as an adjunct faculty member in 1991. Before becoming V.P. of Business Services, he served as the College’s Chief Information Officer from 1994 to 2014. 

Minter has been actively involved in the Bloomington-Normal community as a member of the Boys and Girls Club of Bloomington-Normal Community Advisory Council. He was a founding director on the Central Illinois Regional Broadband Network (CIRBN) board, an organization dedicated to providing high-speed internet service to hundreds of profit and non-profit organizations, including schools, colleges and libraries.

Last year Minter was chosen by the Illinois Community College Trustees Association as the recipient of the 2019 Gary W. Davis Ethical Leadership Award.

“It is with deep sadness intermingled with genuine excitement for a whole new challenge that I will be bidding a fond farewell to Heartland,” said Minter. “I couldn’t be more thankful for such a rewarding career working in an organization with amazing, talented, and caring professionals.”

Minter’s final day at Heartland will be May 15, 2020.
