Ivy Tech restructures academic divisionto align programs

Ivy Tech Community College will restructure its academic division to better align programs with potential career and transfer tracks for students, as well as aid in the retention of students, reports Kelly Hauflaire, assistant vice president of communications.

The new structure will divide the college’s academic programming into four distinct divisions, including the University and Transfer Division, Health Division, Business and Public Services Division and Technology and Applied Sciences Division.

“This new structure will provide a clear path for students and more directly align with the students’ end goal after Ivy Tech,” said Dr. Mary Ostrye, the school’s senior vice president and provost. “Each division has a distinct pathway leading to a career or a transfer track, saving students time and money as they pursue their education goals.”

The University and Transfer Division will include academic programs designed to transfer directly to a related baccalaureate program at a four-year college or university. It also incorporates Indiana’s transfer general education core with a choice of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (calculus-based) or non-STEM pathways. Students who complete a program within the University and Transfer Division will earn the General Education Transfer Certificate and an associate degree in a chosen field of study.

The Health Division will encompass all programs that prepare students for a recognized health license or certification. Most programs are selective admission with limited enrollment, and many programs will transfer to a baccalaureate program once the graduate is licensed or certified.

The Business and Public Services Division will include programs designed to prepare graduates for immediate employment, and degrees awarded are primarily the Associate of Applied Science. Most programs have related technical certificates that can be completed prior to the Associate of Applied Science, while some programs embed certifications. However, this coursework is typically elective and not required to meet degree requirements.
