FORT WAYNE, Ind. – James (Jim) Aschliman, executive director of Ivy Tech Corporate College for northeast Indiana, has announced his retirement.

His retirement will be effective Jan. 31, 2014.
In his current position, Aschliman oversees the College's partnerships with local workforce agencies in Ivy Tech Northeast’s nine-county region.
“It is hard to believe over 27 years have passed since starting at Ivy Tech. It has been great to be part of the change and growth that has taken place in the College,” Aschliman says. “I have been fortunate to work directly with our students and for the past few years with employers and economic development professionals in northeast Indiana and around the state. While I will miss working with my colleagues and community partners, I plan to continue promoting educational attainment and life-long learning.”
Aschliman resides in Huntington County with his wife, Brooke, and daughter, Alexandria, and has volunteered in various Huntington community organizations. He is a board member of Life-Long Learning of Huntington County and is retired from the Air National Guard, where he served 23 years including time as the State Human Resources Advisor for the Adjutant General's staff.
