Technical Education ... Putting America Back to Work: 47th National Conference on Technical Education April 7-9, 2010-Indianapolis, Ind


[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Ivy Tech Community College is pleased to welcome the American Technical Education Association's 47th National Conference on Technical Education to Indianapolis, April 7-9, 2010. The Conference theme is "Technical Education ... Putting America Back to Work." We are proud of ATEA's efforts to foster postsecondary technical education, professional development and best practices. Ivy Tech is likewise committed to excellence in education and values your advocacy and partnership in providing value-based education that translate to success for our students and economic development for our communities.

Ivy Tech to Host National Conference

What began as a local, grass-roots plan to offer high-school graduates a college-alternative way to develop and certify vocational-technical skills in 1967, has now grown into Indiana's largest post-secondary education provider and the nation's largest, singly-accredited, community college. Offering diversified educational opportunities that span every niche, from professional certifications, associate degrees, workforce training and economic development partnerships with the state's private and public business sectors, Ivy Tech Community College continues yearly growth records that have doubled its size to 110,000 students for the 2009 Fall semester and may boost annual enrollment to an estimated 150,000.

Attracting more students in record numbers every year, Ivy Tech offers the flexibility to match changing market needs with flexible curriculum options that fit student life schedules, budgets and career expectations. A good percentage of Ivy Tech students are married, employed, and 40 percent have children.

Each student shares a common goal to succeed and is focused on a positive career path. A structured plan can include pathways from certified skills training that lead directly to in-demand jobs in a relatively short period of time to pursuing a two-year associates degree program that either leads to a good-paying job or transfers to one of the many other state colleges or university institutions as an integrated part of a traditional four-year degree.
