Returning to his roots, Mark Scherer is excited to serve at Illinois State University. He credits his time as a student at Illinois State as being instrumental in his own life and career.

Mark brings over 20 years of experience from 4 institutions of higher learning to his role as Director of Development. Many of those years were spent as a college basketball coach before his transition to a career in Development in 2012. His responsibilities include working closely with all of the colleges in order to further the success of the University. Mark’s goal is to help Illinois State alumni and friends connect with the University in a way that will enrich their lives and be meaningful to all.

Mark enjoys spending time with his family, sports, and the outdoors. When not on campus or traveling on behalf of the University, he can usually be found with his family, out in nature at their family farm.
