Gustavus Adolphus College recently named Doug Minter its new director of student financial assistance. A 1979 Gustavus graduate, Minter previously worked for the college in admission and financial assistance from 1985 to 1997. Most recently he served as director of school relations at College Loan Corporation in St. Peter.

Reporting to Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Financial Assistance Mark Anderson, Minter replaces former director Mary Booker ’91, who resigned in September.

“I am very excited to be back at Gustavus working with prospective students and families as they go about making their college choice,” Minter said. “In today’s economic climate a high percentage of students are going to apply for need-based financial aid and that makes financial assistance a key component of the college selection process.”

“Doug has experience managing all aspects of a financial assistance office as well as extensive knowledge of federal and state financial aid regulations,” Anderson said. “We are thrilled to have him back at Gustavus.”

Minter obtained his undergraduate degree from Gustavus in psychology and went on to earn a master’s of divinity degree in 1983 from Luther Theological Seminary in St. Paul, Minn. After serving Gustavus for 12 years as associate director of financial aid and admission, he moved on to assume the title of director of student financial planning at Stetson University in DeLand, Fla. Minter also spent time at James Tower Media Design as a network manager and at Citibank as a national business development manager.
