Murphy to lead Ivy Tech Foundation

INDIANAPOLIS — John M. Murphy has been named president of the Ivy Tech Foundation and senior vice president at the college, effective April 1.

“John brings a wealth of experience and is a proven leader,” said Ivy Tech President Thomas J. Snyder in a release. “We are focused on increasing our efforts of raising additional monies and garnering new support to ensure that we can keep higher education affordable here in Indiana. John is a very qualified individual and his experience with complex sales organizations will be a benefit to our team here at the Foundation, a team he has spent time working with over the past two decades.”

Barbosa completes Hoosier Chamber Academy

ANDERSON — Angela Barbosa, executive vice president of the Madison County Chamber of Commerce, has been recognized by the Indiana Chamber Executives Association for her having completed the Hoosier Chamber Academy in 2012. She was one of 19 in the state to do so.

The Academy is targeted toward chamber leaders, and helps them increase individual knowledge and skill required to work with a chamber of commerce.

Barbosa has served in her current position since 2010. She is a summa cum laude graduate of the College of Charleston, where she earned her bachelors’ degree in English with a minor in business administration.

Ivy Tech president to head national workgroup

INDIANAPOLIS — Tom Snyder, president of Ivy Tech Community College, has been named chair of the National Council of State Directors of Community Colleges Nursing and Allied Health Professions Workgroup.

The organization works to tie skills learned in associate degree programs with the current needs of the work force, including examining laws and policies and facilitating discussion among community colleges about how to strengthen the capacity of associate degree programs to supply their communities with high quality health care professionals.

That could include rearranging current educational priorities, for example, “Patient care improves when more nurses care for fewer patients, yet focus is on RNs attaining a second undergraduate degree (BSN) that adds not a single new nurse to the workforce,” Snyder said.

Statewide, Ivy Tech has nearly 2,000 students enrolled in its registered nurse programs in any given term. The school graduates 1,300 nurses a year, more than any school in the state of Indiana.
