Dr. Sue Ellspermann invited for National Dialogue on Safely Reopening America’s Schools

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Ivy Tech Community College President Sue Ellspermann has been invited to the White House for the National Dialogue on Safely Reopening America’s Schools. Dr. Ellspermann is representing community colleges in a discussion with President Donald Trump and Vice President Michael R. Pence and other higher education leaders regarding the reopening of schools this upcoming term.

This fall semester, beginning August 24, Ivy Tech will invite students back onto campuses throughout Indiana for face-to-face courses while continuing to offer virtual, hybrid, and online opportunities. The College has built out a robust schedule of classes that will allow students maximum flexibility including both 8- and 16-week terms.

Ivy Tech is taking all of the necessary steps to ensure a deep cleaning of all buildings takes place prior to the start of classes and ongoing. Students will be provided with a high-quality, washable mask to keep, as wearing a mask is required in public spaces at the campuses. Preventive protocols to reduce risk of transmission will also be implemented across campuses. Further details will be shared with students, faculty, and staff leading up to campuses reopening in August.
