    ASAP Mental Health

    ASAP Mental Health

    ASAP is Ivy Tech’s accelerated associate degree program where students graduate with their associate degree in just 11 months. In the summer of 2020, ASAP applied for and received a grant from Circle of Ivy to provide stress management curriculum and materials to students.
    During the most recent academic year, the Stress management kits were provided to all ASAP students statewide and mental health programming was incorporated into Flexible Friday curriculum delivered by trained mental health professionals.
    The statewide mental health programming was delivered via synchronous Zoom meetings which continued to strengthen students' sense of belonging within the statewide learning community. Students were equipped with stress management strategies and tools necessary to successfully persist in their accelerated curriculum and complete their first college degree in 11-months.
    This week’s guests are:
    Paula Birt, Assistant Vice President K-14 Initiatives & ASAP, Systems Office Beth Chaney, ASAP Director, Kokomo/Logansport Stephanie Drudge, ASAP Director, South Bend/Elkhart Heather McDonald, ASAP Director, Columbus Adam Werling, ASAP Coordinator, Muncie If you’d like to learn more about Circle of Ivy, please visit https://giving.ivytech.edu/circle-of-ivy/.

    168: Advising Levels

    168: Advising Levels

    Goal 5 of Ivy Tech’s Strategic Plan is all about continuing to grow as a great place to work. This week’s podcast is all about a new way to recognize employees - specifically academic advisors - for their service to the College.
    The Vice President for Student Success and Assistant Vice President of Academic Advising formed a team consisting of Chancellors, Directors, Advisors, Vice Chancellors of Student Success, and Human Resources in Fall 2019. The goal of the team was to develop Advising levels similar to Faculty levels.
    The team reviewed advising turnover rates and compared other institutional structures for advising promotions. They developed, as an outcome, advising levels. The Advising levels create a pathway for advisors to advance in their position by providing evidence of continued professional development, outstanding performance, and service to the College and community. The goal of this project is to be both a retention and professional development tool.
    Thanks to our expert panel:
    Cory Clasemann, Vice President for Student Success, Systems Office Susan Hawkins-Wilding, Assistant Vice President of Academic Advising, Systems Office Jodie Beatty, Vice Chancellor for Student Success, Sellersburg Campus Angie Shafer, Director of Academic Advising Columbus Campus This new program will begin rolling out in September so watch for more information. And, we do plan to do this for other employee groups so stay tuned to more information on that.

    Idea Dash

    Idea Dash

    In the spring semester of 2021 from April 7-16, the Strategy 5.2 Committee invited all employees throughout the state to participate in Ivy Tech's first statewide Idea Dash. The HMW question was “How might we improve brand advocacy for Ivy Tech among faculty and staff?”.
    The virtual sessions were scheduled over a two-week period for a duration of 2-3 hours and accommodated 20 participants per session. Findings from the extensive Ivy Tech branding study were shared with the participants through a video to offer insights into how the public perceives the value of an Ivy Tech education and where Ivy Tech can improve its efforts in recruiting and retaining students.
    Meet the Panel
    Dr. Allyn Decker, Vice Chancellor, Warsaw Trent Hawker, Assistant Director of Talent Development, Systems Office Justin Dammeier, Executive Director, Educational Technology Dr. Leighann Rechtin, Communication/General Studies Department Chair, Lawrenceburg Dr. Christine Peterson, IvyOnline Health Sciences Faculty Lead; Asst.

    New Curriculum Management System

    New Curriculum Management System

    Ivy Tech is partnering with DigArc to improve the quality of our curriculum and catalog management system. The improvements should result in better integration between these two tools (e.g. you’ll be able to click on class numbers/names in the curriculum to link directly to the course outline of record), better integration with existing tools like Banner and our Degree Audit tool, and more transparency for faculty and staff into the curriculum approval processes at the College.
    The new tool, which is scheduled to launch in Feb 2022, will replace the Google Docs/Drive tools used today as well as the internal approval process used following curriculum committee meetings. This week’s panel will share how this tool implementation is going and what changes you can expect.
    Thanks to our guests:
    Sarah Ferguson, Director of Academic Projects, Systems Office Drew Lurker, Director of Student Records, Systems Office Vearl Turnpaugh, Assistant Vice President for Curriculum, Systems Office  Dr. Russ Baker, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Systems Office Get in Touch
