About Your College


Ivy Tech Community College is the state's largest public postsecondary institution and the nation's largest singly accredited statewide community college system serving nearly 200,000 students annually. 

Ivy Tech was created by the General Assembly in 1963 and is one of the state’s seven public, post-secondary institutions along with IU, Purdue, Ball State, ISU, USI and Vincennes.  Ivy Tech was named Indiana’s sole community college system in 2005 and is the nation’s only statewide community college system.  As a public college, Ivy Tech is state-supported, which means a major portion of its funding is provided by appropriations from the Indiana General Assembly.

While our students enjoy the benefits of a large institution, with 23 campuses throughout the state and an average class size of 22, students find personal attention close to home at Ivy Tech Community College.

Ivy Tech is the state's most affordable college and with credits that transfer, students can save money by completing the first two years of a four-year degree at Ivy Tech.

Ivy Tech Community College's Department of Workforce and Economic Development offers local, affordable solutions for Indiana business and industry training needs.

Ivy Tech’s mission is to prepare Indiana residents to learn, live, and work in a diverse and globally competitive environment by delivering professional, technical, transfer and lifelong education.  Through its affordable, open access education and training programs, the college enhances the development of Indiana’s citizens and communities and strengthens its economy.  Our vision is “Changing Lives, Making Indiana Great.”

The College recently launched its new “Accelerating Greatness 2013 Strategic Plan,” which includes four core strategies: 1.) Ensure that students achieve their educational goals, 2.) Make Indiana’s citizens, workforce and businesses more competitive globally, 3.) Ensure optimal quality and efficiencies statewide, and 4.) Secure an adequate and sustainable resource base.
