Two finalists have been named for the position of chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College’s north central region.
Thomas G. Coley, president of Scott Community College in Bettendorf, Iowa, and vice chancellor for instruction for the East Iowa Community College District.
Joan L. Kindle, associate provost at Harper College in Palatine, Ill.
Both candidates will visit Ivy Tech’s South Bend campus early next week to meet with students, employees and some invited community leaders. There will be no opportunity for the general public to meet Coley and Kindle.
Coley earned a bachelor’s degree in political science at Moorhead State University in Minnesota, a master’s degree in policy science at the University of Wisconsin and a doctoral degree in education administration, also from the University of Wisconsin. He has worked at Scott Community College since 2005.
Kindle earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from Northern Illinois University, a master’s degree in college student personnel/higher education at Bowling Green State University in Ohio and is enrolled in a doctoral degree program in community college leadership at National-Louis University in Chicago, with completion expected in 2012. She has worked at Harper College since 1986: as associate provost since 2010, as assistant to the president from 2002 to 2010, and prior to that as vice president of student affairs and dean of student development.
