Ivy Tech Community College has named Jonathan Weinzapfel to serve as Chancellor of its Evansville campus as part of its organizational restructure announcement.
The new structure, to better align with community needs at the campus level and empower campuses to be responsive and nimble in meeting local needs, was announced Tuesday. Prior to the change, multiple campuses reported to regional leadership, including the college’s Evansville and Terre Haute campuses reporting to a single chancellor, a role Weinzapfel held.
Evansville will now be a self-sustaining campus with Weinzapfel serving as the Chancellor.
In Terre Haute, Lea Anne Crooks will continue as the Campus President. Further announcements regarding additional Chancellor appointments will continue through August 1st.
“We appreciate Jonathan’s dedication to Ivy Tech and to the difficult work of leading not only the Evansville campus, but also the Terre Haute campus since May of 2014. His leadership of the combined regions developed several successful programs and best practices that have been replicated across the state,” Ivy Tech President Sue Ellspermann said.
“This new structure, with Jonathan at the helm of the Evansville campus, will allow Ivy Tech to more intentionally focus on community needs of Evansville and southwest Indiana.”
Among his successes at the Terre Haute campus was a $1.2 million grant from the Economic Development Administration for the college’s Precision Agriculture Technology Program.
Weinzapfel serves on several boards including the Terre Haute Economic Development Corporation and the Vigo County School Corporation Superintendent’s Advisory Board.
