Ivy Tech Community College is again topping a list of the nation’s two-year colleges in granting associate degrees. Overall, Community College Week says Ivy Tech ranks third behind University of Phoenix-Arizona and Miami Dade College.
Ivy Tech says it awarded 9,954 associate degrees during the 2014-2015 academic year, a total that almost doubled the next-highest two-year college, Houston Community College. Ivy Tech has been ranked tops by the industry publication for four straight years. It’s associate degree totals were up year-over-year by five percent.
President Sue Ellspermann says "Ivy Tech Community College is thrilled to see so many students earning their associate degree. Lumina Foundation has set a goal to have 60 percent of our workforce holding a degree or certificate by the year 2025. With Ivy Tech’s facilities, program offerings, and faculty and staff, we are well equipped to help meet that goal."
Ivy Tech also led the way among its two-year peers in two-year certificate awards and was sixth for one-year certificates.
