WABASH -

Ivy Tech Community College is shrinking its footprint in Wabash County. The Ivy Tech Wabash site, a former elementary school built in 1952, will be donated to Wabash City Schools. Ivy Tech classes will continue either at the site or at Wabash High School. Officials say the decision is a response to Ivy Tech's plan to reduce it's "spatial footprint" by one-million square-feet statewide.

Ivy Tech Fort Wayne, Warsaw and Wabash Chancellor Jerrilee Mosier says "we are confident this partnership will help increase the Ivy Tech mission of providing accessible and affordable higher education in supporting Wabash's mission of ensuring every student is college- and career-ready." She says Ivy Tech continues to be committed to Wabash County and the surrounding area.

Wabash City School Corp. Superintendent Jason Callahan believes the arrangement with Ivy Tech will help create "a clearer path between K-14 and career pathways." He adds "we are equally as excited about the opportunity to continue to work with area industry to advance career advancement through adult education opportunities."

Ivy Tech first located to the site in 1995 when it was part of the Kokomo region. You can connect to more about the agreement between Ivy Tech and Wabash Schools by clicking here.
