Ivy Tech Community College has named Kathleen Mote interim chancellor of its Columbus/Southeast Region. She fills the leadership vacancy created when former Chancellor Chris Lowery was named senior vice president of workforce alignment. The Columbus/Southeast Region has campuses in Batesville, Columbus, Lawrenceburg and Madison and has an enrollment of nearly 5,000 students. Mote began her career with Ivy Tech as an adjunct professor of general education in 2009.

Mote was honored in 2014 as Outstanding Prosecutor of the Year by the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence. She has been a member of the Indiana Bar since 2005. Under Mote’s leadership, enrollment at the Madison Campus has increased. The Madison Campus has led the state through development of the Transfer General Education Core dual enrollment program where high school students taking college classes at Ivy Tech Madison complete the first year of college upon high school graduation. Enrollment of high school students in this program has increased from 22 in 2014 to 208 this fall. During her tenure as campus president, she was among those in the Madison community spearheading manufacturing initiatives that have created career pathways for high school students. Mote holds a Bachelor of Arts degree, earned with high distinction, in English and Spanish from Indiana University, Bloomington.
