    Heard about the possibility a couple weeks ago on local radio. Said BOT was trying to rally alumni and fundraising to allow them to continue. IMO, there needs to be some more closures/consolidation of colleges. Just too many and I'm shocked at these smaller schools continuing to fund athletics. You'd think they'd close down unnecessary cost centers to focus on core competencies.

    Agree!! I say Dr Bradley demand the immediate closure of ISU's regional campuses, the return of the endowments and transfer all real and intangible property to ISU. Any current "students" at the regional campuses can apply for admission to ISU.

    Does that include ISU -- East over in Muncie ?
    If so, I say we only admit students from there who can read & write !
    They should receive ENHANCED vetting before being allowed in Terre Haute.

    On a serious note -- Wow -- I used to take my students up to St. Joe for conferences etc. And Benton Central had some athletes play there. Sad situation.

    Are you arguing for all colleges or merely the publicly funded ones? St Joseph's is obviously private and free to run a college if they see fit. I don't think the Bishop in Lafayette would have much influence over ordering it to close.

    I'm guessing their (former) extension campus in Whiting isn't affected by this decision?

    I DO agree that the State of Indiana was far, FAR too damn many publicly funded campuses, esp of the gloomington reform extension family... and damn, ivy tech... isnt' there an ivy tech in every freakin' county?

    Yes you're right, they have a "campus" in many counties. The Foundation Development Staff is regionally positioned with support staff to discover,cultivate and steward prospective donors, both individual and corporate. They place emphasis on local support, a sense of community. The Ivy Tech Foundation has net assets of app. $104mm (according to the 2014, IRS 990 found on Guidstar).
