John Whikehart

In my thirteenth year as chancellor . . . I’ve watched the transformation of the institution from a vocational-technical school to a truly comprehensive community college on our Bloomington campus.

Prior to his appointment as deputy mayor, John Whikehart served as chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College in Bloomington, a position he held since 2001.

Previously he served as executive director for administration for Ivy Tech at Kokomo and South Bend. In addition, he was an adjunct faculty at Indiana University-Kokomo and at Ivy Tech-Kokomo.

Before he came to Ivy Tech, Whikehart was chief of staff to the Indiana Senate Minority Leader, director of community relations at Indiana University Kokomo, and personnel director for the City of Kokomo.

He earned a Bachelor of Science from Indiana University Bloomington and a Master of Arts from Ball State University.
