Ivy Tech Community College East Central region chancellor Andy Bowne
Andy Bowne, an experienced community college fundraiser and workforce developer in Michigan, was named chancellor of the East Central region of Ivy Tech Community College on Tuesday.
Bowne, 49, said his wife, Ruth, son Michael, 19, daughter Elizabeth, 16, and dog Norman would join him in Muncie as soon as their home in Grand Rapids is sold.
“We really are an arm not just of economic development, not just academic development, but workforce development,” Ivy Tech President Tom Snyder said before introducing Bowne (rhymes with town) at the downtown Fisher Building. “Our charter is to work with everybody in this state, but very closely with clients, the people who do the hiring, the people who actually employ our students, and I think he brings with him a wealth of that background. He knows the process quite well.”
