Ivy Tech names new chancellor

TERRE HAUTE — Jonathan Weinzapfel has been named chancellor of the newly-combined Terre Haute/Evansville region of Ivy Tech Community College.

Weinzapfel is the former mayor of Evansville and a former state representative; he is currently an attorney with Faegre Baker Daniels.

“This is a great step forward for the college,” said Jeff Terp, Ivy Tech Community College executive vice president and chief operating officer, during an announcement at the Wabash Valley campus this morning. “He’s truly the person we were looking for.”

Weinzapfel described his new duties as “a great opportunity to lead. It’s an opportunity for me to get back into public service. Ivy Tech is truly on the cutting edge of economic development in this state.”

The college announced its intent to combine the Southwest (Evansville) and Wabash Valley (Terre Haute) regions earlier this month.

In March, Wabash Valley chancellor Ann Valentine announced she was stepping down May 15  to pursue other opportunities in higher education. Valentine has been chancellor since July 1, 2011.

Ivy Tech expects to name presidents for both the Terre Haute and Evansville campuses within 30 days. The presidents will report to Weinzapfel.

Ivy Tech has been consolidating several of its regions throughout the state, Terp said. The goal is to cut costs and redirect savings to focus on student success by hiring more advisers and full-time faculty.
