According to the The Indianapolis Star, former Indiana Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann was unanimously named Wednesday as president of Ivy Tech Community College by the institution’s board of trustees. She will replace current Ivy Tech President Tom Snyder, who is retiring.
Ellspermann resigned from office on March 2 to seek Ivy Tech’s presidency and emerged atop a field of 30 candidates.
On Thursday, Ellspermann will give her first official speech as Ivy Tech’s leader by serving as the keynote speaker for Innovate Indiana’s second annual E2E Convergence conference held at IUPUI’s Campus Center.
Founded in 1963, Ivy Tech is the nation’s largest singly-accredited statewide community college system in the nation, serving more than 170,000 students a year from 32 degree-granting locations and 75 communities where classes are taught. Read more about Ellspermann’s appointment here:
