Ivy Tech consolidating Kokomo, Lafayette regions


INDIANAPOLIS – Ivy Tech Community College is moving ahead with a plan to consolidate the administrative structures of its Lafayette and Kokomo regions.

The plan approved by Ivy Tech's trustees will place current Lafayette Region Chancellor David Bathe in charge of both the Lafayette and Kokomo regions. The change is in the latest in a series of regional leadership consolidations intended to decrease costs and increase efficiencies in the Ivy Tech system.

The Kokomo Tribune reports Kokomo Region Chancellor Stephen Daily will help implement the consolidation plan he and Bathe will draft for the region. Daily is set to retire in January,

The new administrative structure will serve 14 counties and oversee campuses and instructional sites in Crawfordsville, Frankfort, Kokomo, Lafayette, Logansport, Monticello, Peru, Rochester, Tipton, and Wabash.
