Thomas Coley named chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College’s north-central region

South Bend Tribune March 25, 2011
Thomas G. Coley, a longtime community college administrator in the Midwest, was named Thursday as the next chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College’s north-central region.

He will begin the job June 1.

Coley has served as president of Scott Community College in Bettendorf, Iowa, since 2005. Since 2008, he’s also served as vice chancellor for instruction for the Eastern Iowa Community College District.

During a visit to South Bend in February, Coley said he believes in hands-on involvement in the community. In Iowa, he’s been an active member of the United Way, the Chamber of Commerce and other organizations, and he said he plans to take the same approach in the South Bend area.

Coley also said he’s intrigued by the fact that Ivy Tech is a statewide system with a central office and statewide accreditation, saying economies of scale can be achieved by that structure.

Coley has experience crafting articulation agreements that allow students to transfer credits and two-year degrees to private four-year colleges and larger state universities. "Every time we start a new course (in Iowa), we have to make sure a university nearby accepts it," he said.

The East Iowa Community College District enrolls more than 9,000 students each fall and more than 30,000 students each year.

In comparison, Ivy Tech’s north-central region serves about 15,000 students annually.
