Ileo Lott: New dean of sustainability, business, and career technologies (with audio)

Ileo Lott

Ileo Lott

Ileo Lott may not strike you as a handyman, but having a dad who owned an air conditioning and refrigeration company gave him plenty of opportunities to get his hands dirty.

Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, Lott started his academic journey as a student at a community college and has played an integral role in higher education for more than 15 years.

As the new dean of sustainability, business, and career technologies, Lott brings with him a wide range of experience. He previously worked as the associate vice chancellor at City Colleges of Chicago, where he was responsible for career and technical education management and curriculum development for seven independently accredited colleges.

Lott strongly believes in the mission of community colleges to help students succeed and is proud to work at ECC, where he can help further that mission.

“Elgin Community College is highly regarded,” he said. “The opportunity to work at an Achieving the Dream Leader College was very appealing to me. I know the college has a vision and a concept for adding value to students, which aligns with my own personal beliefs on higher ed.”

Lott earned his EdD in organizational leadership from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology/Argosy University. He also holds an MA in integrated marketing communications from Roosevelt University and a BA in English from Roosevelt University. He will earn his MA in healthcare communications from Northwestern University in fall 2015.

In addition to his extensive administrative experience, Lott has taught business, advanced academic study and writing, and integrated marketing communications at various institutions.
