TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Indiana State University officials say a new partnership with Ivy Tech has been a success.

A new one-year program called “Pathway To Blue” will allow students to utilize and live on ISU’s campus, while taking classes at Ivy Tech. The partnership is designed to make a transfer to ISU simpler after students complete the program.

During a Board of Trustees meeting held Friday afternoon, campus officials said the demand to enter “Pathway To Blue” has exceeded expectations. ISU Provost Mike Licari added that ISU is looking to expand the program.

“We recognize that some students are best served by starting their college careers at Ivy Tech in order to get the academic support that they need before transferring smoothly to ISU,” Licari said.

During today’s meeting, the board also approved additional membership to the President’s Council on Inclusive Excellence.
