ICC Names Bill Hébert Jr. as New Vice President of Student Success

Illinois Central College named Bill Hébert Jr. (AY-bear) of Madison, WI, as Vice President of Student Success. He will oversee student services, student development, student success, enrollment services, and athletics.

ICC President Dr. Sheila Quirk-Bailey said, “I am particularly excited about Mr. Hébert’s background in working with first-generation and at-risk students. His many years of experience in student affairs, along with his passion for helping all students succeed and achieve their goals, will greatly serve Illinois Central College, our community and our region.”

Hébert joins ICC after serving as Vice President for Student Affairs at North Shore Community College, outside of Boston, MA. Prior to this experience, his leadership roles included: Senior Vice President for Educational Services for the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities; Creator and Director of the Office of Central Advising at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; and Dean of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management at the University of Wisconsin-Marathon County.

Much of Hébert’s experience has involved working with students in at-risk, minority and first-generation populations. He has provided leadership in Minority Student Recruitment Outreach and Campus Diversity Education programs. He has also held multiple assistant dean and director roles and has led various recruitment and retention initiatives at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

“I am excited to be a part of the ICC family,” said Mr. Hébert. “I plan to bring a fresh student services lens to ICC, and not only be a major contributor to any new initiatives or areas of change, but provide quality leadership and management to the campus, community, and the students we serve.”

Hébert holds an M.A. in Adult Education Leadership from the University of Phoenix and a B.A. in Broadcasting Journalism from Southern Illinois University. He has served as a board member of Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Dane County, the Carter G. Foundation and the Governor’s Higher Education Board. He is the founder, CEO and current board chair of the Wisconsin Streak Select Youth Organization.
