Illinois Central College has a new interim president.

A statement from ICC says Budde has been at the College for nearly 23 years. He has served as the director of human resources, controller, and most recently as executive vice president of administration and finance. Budde is a graduate of Manual High School in Peoria, with an MBA from the University of Illinois, Springfield.

He comes at a time when the school, and other community colleges across the Illinois, are in a position of uncertainty without a state budget.

ICC’s board chair says the presidential search is on schedule and plans are to complete the process early next year.
