ANDERSON, Ind. —
While Ivy Tech officials are open to discussions regarding the location of the new Anderson campus, he noted, a downtown location would not fit with the college's current philosophy of locating campuses along interstates for accessibility and visibility. Moreover, he noted that the downtown Anderson location could make it difficult to draw students from Pendleton, Daleville, Fishers and other areas.
Bowne also noted that plans for the new campus have to be ready for approval by late September to meet the projected 2015 facility opening, leaving little time to shift plans for the location of the campus.
"By late September, this all has to be resolved, or we miss a deadline," Bowne said.
