Student Retention Office: Staff


JESSICA STRUNK, Director of Retention

I have been with the College for 8 years and I truly enjoy helping students succeed.

Throughout my time at Ivy Tech, I have worked in many departments. I started my career at Ivy Tech as the front desk receptionist for the Financial Aid/Enrollment Services department. From there, I moved to Advising and then to Student Development. During my time in Student Development, I had the opportunity to lead New Student Orientation and advise the Student Ambassador group. Once I moved to Retention, I knew I found my passion. I love being the person a student turns to in their time of need. The Retention Office is passionate about helping students navigate their educational road blocks.

My educational background began at Ivy Tech. I graduated in 2005 with my Associate’s Degree in Office Administration. My degree from Ivy Tech ignited my passion for education. I continued on to earn my Bachelor’s Degree from Indiana State University in 2008 and my Master’s Degree from Capella University in 2011.

My husband and I have a young daughter, two dogs, and two cats. We enjoy family time and meeting new people.

I look forward to working with you and helping you continue on with your educational goals.
