The latest changes are being driven in part by Gov. Mike Pence's education initiatives, including the creation of the Indiana Career Council and regional "works councils." The Career Council has been tasked with identifying available jobs, determining which skills are needed to fill them and analyzing where the state is spending job-training money.
"We believe that all of these changes are a part of our plan to align with the Indiana Career Council and Works Councils efforts," Ivy Tech President Thomas Snyder said in a news release.
"Our new structure will allow us to best assess existing skill gaps between available jobs and Indiana's workforce and partner with business and industry to fill those gaps."
