ICC Names Michelle Bugos to Associate VP of Human Resources

The Board of Trustees has approved Ms. Michelle Bugos as ICC’s new Associate Vice President of Human Resources. In addition to assisting the Human Resources department through their transitions, she oversees the Risk Management and Organizational Learning departments. She reports to the executive vice president of administration and finance.

For the last 14 years, Michelle has been the director of human resources and Title IX coordinator at Spoon River College in Canton, Ill. There she was a member of the president’s cabinet and was involved in strategic planning, budget development and management, as well as planning and developing policies. She was responsible for implementing the strategic plan, operational strategies, new educational programs, and increasing student enrollment. She also established a leadership development program that included orientation, mentoring, and professional development for all managers and supervisors. Her human resources experience began in 2001, when she served as a human resources generalist and corporate human resources manager with Rohn Industries in Peoria. She then moved on to Advanced Technologies in Peoria, where she served as a senior human resources generalist.

Her many years of experience in human resources and in higher education make her a great fit for human resources here at ICC. We are very excited to welcome Michelle to her new role within the College.

You may reach Michelle at Ext. 5593. She is located in the HR Dept. office, Room 339C, East Peoria Campus. Vanessa Swanson, Ext. 5755, is her administrative assistant.
