After struggling with financial problems largely attributable to declines in state funding, officials at Indiana's Ivy Tech Community College said Tuesday that they're cutting the number of regional chancellors from 14 to 11 as part of a larger consolidation effort. The combinations of Ivy Tech's East Central and Richmond regions and Columbus and Southeast regions will save Ivy Tech between $2.5 to $3 million total, said a college representative. While the number of chancellors will drop to 11, the number of regional boards of trustees will remain at 14.
Ivy Tech has wanted to bring on more advisers and full-time faculty since early last year, when officials said they might eliminate as many as 20 of the 76 campus locations, and system leaders hope these changes will help them achieve that goal.
Ivy Tech is Indiana's primary community college system and serves almost 200,000 students each year, through 31 campuses and 75 educational sites.
