Dr. Judith Burton of Orleans has recently joined the staff of Ivy Tech Community College Bloomington in The Center for Lifelong Learning as coordinator of classes for Orange and Lawrence Counties.

Burton has partnered with Ivy Tech since 2009 offering non-credit classes at Burton Kimble Farms Education Center, located east of Orleans. Her new responsibilities include designing additional learning opportunities for Ivy Tech’s sites at the StoneGate Arts & Education Center in Bedford and the Orange County Learning Center at Springs Valley.

Dr. Burton is not a newcomer to the field of education. She was affiliated with Northwood University for 20 years before forming a professional development and consulting firm. In her role as a facilitator, she has conducted international and domestic training programs for major corporations around the world.

“I am eager to work with the neighboring communities in Lawrence and Orange Counties to accomplish the mission of The Center for Lifelong Learning at Ivy Tech Bloomington to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities,” she said.
