Toyota awards Ivy Tech Community College $20,000 for Princeton Campus

EVANSVILLE- Ivy Tech Community College has received a donation of $20,000 from Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana, Inc. (TMMI), for use at the Ivy Tech campus in Princeton.

Funds will be used to update approximately 3,800 square feet of unfinished space at the Princeton campus. The estimated total cost of the project will be $50,000.  Ivy Tech will be seeking additional community partners to help fund a portion of the remaining cost.

“The newly updated space on campus will be an asset to the community as well as to Toyota,” said Dan Schenk, Chancellor of Ivy Tech’s Southwest Region. “This will provide another training resource for Toyota employees and others in the manufacturing industry.”

The Princeton Instructional Center is located on south Main St. in Princeton.  The site offers classrooms, computer labs, a student lounge/vending area, a community meeting room, and a certification/testing center.

Ivy Tech Community College is the state’s largest public post-secondary institution and the nation’s largest singly-accredited statewide community college system with more than 200,000 students enrolled annually.  Ivy Tech has campuses throughout Indiana.  It serves as the state’s engine of workforce development, offering affordable degree programs and training that are aligned with the needs of its community along with courses and programs that transfer to other colleges and universities in Indiana.  It is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association.
