INDIANAPOLIS (AP): The board of Indiana’s community college system is poised to vote on hiring the school’s new president.
Ivy Tech Community College’s trustees are scheduled to meet Wednesday afternoon, with a vote expected on a replacement for outgoing President Thomas Snyder.
Former Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann is widely believed to be the leading candidate for the job. She resigned from Republican Gov. Mike Pence’s administration in March after a reported rift between them.
Pence appoints all members of the Ivy Tech board and has said Ellspermann is a great candidate for the position.
Ellspermann was the founding director of the Center for Applied Research and Economic Development at the University of Southern Indiana.
Snyder is retiring this summer after overseeing Ivy Tech’s more than 30 campuses since 2007.
