Regional Board of Trustees

Regional Board of Trustees

Statewide, Ivy Tech Community College is governed by a 14-member Board of Trustees appointed by the governor. Under the terms of the legislation, the members represent various economic interests: manufacturing, commerce, labor, agriculture, educations, and the public at-large. The board appoints the president of the statewide College. In addition, Ivy Tech Northeast, like the other regional campuses, has its own Regional Board of Trustees, whose members also represent varied interests. The state board appoints these members with the aim of keeping the Northeast region in touch with local needs. The Northeast region is administered by a chancellor.
