The chancellor for Ivy Tech Community College’s northwest and north central regions says the regions are laying off 43 people and letting some currently vacant positions go unfilled in cost-cutting moves.
Regional Chancellor Thomas Coley told the South Bend Tribune Wednesday that 31 northwest region employees are being laid off, including eight administrators, five faculty members and 15 full-time staff members. The region has campuses in Michigan City, Valparaiso, Gary and East Chicago.
Coley says 12 north central region employees are being laid off, including three full-time administrators, one full-time faculty member and six full-time staff members. The region has campuses in South Bend, Elkhart County and Warsaw.
Most layoffs will occur in May, when the semester ends.
Coley says no degree or training programs will be cut.
