EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Ivy Tech Community College Evansville Campus total Fall 2019 unduplicated headcount is up 5.7%, at 4,198 as of census day, Sept. 11, as compared with 2018 Census Day’s headcount of 3,973.

“Our doors are open. We are enrolling students for classes beginning Oct. 28 and the spring semester,” said Ivy Tech Chancellor Jonathan Weinzapfel. “We are pleased to be able to serve our communities by providing affordable educational opportunities and by growing our workers’ skillsets to meet employer demands. Through the many partnerships with area school corporations, the work of the College Connection Coaches, and the Pathways Plus Initiative, we anticipate continued growth.”
