The chancellor of Ivy Tech's Columbus/Franklin regional campus is getting a promotion that will allow him to play a larger role in a push by Gov. Mike Pence and legislators to align educational offerings with the state’s evolving job market.
Our news gathering partners at "The Republic" report that John Hogan will become the system’s new associate vice president for student affairs and placement early next year.
Hogan said the new job, which he likely will start on Feb. 1, will give him a chance to influence Ivy Tech’s degree and course offerings "to widen the pipeline and create more opportunities for students so they can get better and better employment opportunities."
The paper reports the appointment comes as Pence and the Indiana General Assembly put into place a series of regional works and career councils that are charged with coordinating with the private sector and schools to identify Indiana’s workforce needs, forge partnerships between schools and businesses and boost career education.
