Ivy Tech Foundation receives IU Credit Union donation for new student success center

Officials at Ivy Tech Community College’s Bloomington campus accepted a $25,000 donation from IU Credit Union on Wednesday, January 21, for the college’s new student success center. The donation is IU Credit Union’s contribution to Ivy Tech-Bloomington’s “Here We Grow Again” capital campaign. Bryan Price, Chief Executive Officer and Doris Sims, Executive Committee Member, presented the check.

“IU Credit Union has been a friend of Ivy Tech-Bloomington for 27 years,” said Chancellor Jennie Vaughan. “We’re grateful for IU Credit Union’s steadfast support over the years, for both student scholarships and our many campus initiatives.”

In recognition of IU Credit Union’s ongoing support of the college, the new student success center will be named the IU Credit Union Student Success Center. It will be housed on the first-floor of the main campus Ferguson Academic Building expansion, and will provide program-specific tutors, writing specialists, computers, and other resources needed to support student achievement.

“Ivy Tech plays a vital role in our community and we are proud to support their expansion project,” said Bryan Price, President and CEO of IU Credit Union.

The Ferguson Building expansion is currently under way and is expected to be complete by Spring Semester 2016.
