Ivy Tech–Northeast celebrating 50th Anniversary Founder’s Day March 20

Ivy Tech Community College is celebrating a major milestone this month as the college celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Once a small vocational and technical school, Ivy Tech is now the nation’s largest singly accredited statewide community college system with 14 administrative regions, 31 degree-granting campuses and classes in nearly 100 locations throughout the state. On Wednesday, the college has invited students, alumni, employees, retirees and the community to celebrate this milestone at its Founder’s Day Celebration. To learn more, visit IvyTech.edu/50years
