- Ivy Tech Community College’s Northeast region is located in Fort Wayne and serves nine counties in the northeast corner of the state. It is the second largest region in the Ivy Tech system.Ivy Tech–Northeast has grown from 131 students enrolled in three programs in August 1969, when the College opened its doors in rented facilities in a former high school, to more than 11,000 students enrolled in seven schools and 32 degree programs in 2010.A 40,000 square-foot building with classroom, laboratory, workshop, and office space was completed in October 1976. This was the region’s first college-owned building on college-owned land. An adjoining structure of the same size was completed in the spring of 1981. The Fort Wayne campus nearly doubled in size with the construction of a third building—a 110,000 square-foot structure that was completed in December 1996. The third phase of the building, with its adjacent parking, totally filled the original 26-acre campus. All campus development for the foreseeable future is taking place on what is being called the North Campus. (Details of the development of the North Campus can be found elsewhere in this publication.) The North Campus is approximately one mile away and is separated form the original campus by Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
