Ivy Tech Merges Regions In Restructuring

Last updated on Thursday, January 9, 2014

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Ivy Tech Community College will eliminate two more regional chancellors and consolidate four regions into two in the latest steps in what it calls its most substantial restructuring in more than 50 years.

Ivy Tech said Tuesday its state board of trustees approved combining its East Central region, including the Anderson, Marion, Muncie and New Castle sites, with the Richmond region that also includes a Connersville site. The combined region will be led by current East Central Chancellor Andrew Bowne.

The college says its Columbus region, including Franklin, will be combined with its Southeast region, which includes Batesville, Lawrenceburg and Madison, and overseen by one chancellor to be named later.

The 175,000-student community college combined Its Northwest and North Central regions last April to help close a $68 million deficit.
