Anderson to be in Ivy Tech's east region

INDIANAPOLIS — Ivy Tech Community College’s State Board of Trustees announced regional structure changes on Wednesday in the most substantial organizational changes that the community college has experienced in its 50 years, officials said.

Regional organizational changes announced by the State Board of Trustees include the combination of the East Central region, which includes the degree-granting locations of Anderson, Marion, Muncie and New Castle, with the Richmond region, which includes the Richmond and Connersville locations. These locations will be led by current East Central Chancellor Andrew Bowne.

The changes will result in increased efficiencies and further focus on the various communities the Community College serves.

Ivy Tech will now operate with 11 regional chancellors, a number that was as high as 14 in the past. Chancellors will continue to oversee the 31-degree granting locations and 75-plus educational sites throughout the state within the various regional boundaries.

“Ivy Tech is focused on being responsive to the local community needs and workforce development efforts. Regional consolidation, along with the recent restructuring of our academic divisions, and soon to be named Campus Presidents, will allow us to expand our outreach efforts and ensure that we are providing what our communities need,” Ivy Tech President Thomas J. Snyder said.

“We believe that all of these changes are a part of our plan to align with the Indiana Career Council and Works Councils efforts," he said.
