Ivy Tech Southeast, which includes the Batesville campus, will soon be joined with Columbus and Franklin region.

Ivy Tech Community College has announced substantial changes that will have an impact on local students.

The college will reduce the 14 regions and chancellors that make up the statewide network to 11. The changes are partly in response to a $4 million cut in state funding.

The Southeast region, which includes campuses in Batesville, Lawrenceburg and Madison, will soon joined by two additional locations. They include the Columbus location, which includes degree-granting locations of Columbus and Franklin.

Ivy Tech said an interim chancellor for the newly defined region will be named in the coming weeks.

Current Ivy Tech Southeast Chancellor James Helms announced his retirement last month after 51 years in education, 16 years which were spent with the college. He will officially step down Jan. 15.

Prior to the consolidation announcement, Helms indicated that the goal of the college is still “getting to a quality program, with quality facilities, and keeping tuition as low as possible for students and parents.”

Ivy Tech also approved combining its East Central region, which includes the Anderson, Marion, Muncie and New Castle sites with the Richmond region that also includes a Connersville campus. The combined region will be led by current East Central Chancellor Andrew Bowne.

The community college’s State Board of Trustees approved the consolidation efforts, which the college is calling the most substantial organizational changes in the system’s 50-year history.
