Ivy Tech pushes to boost single mothers' successApril 8, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Ivy Tech Community College is one of four community colleges across the nation chosen for a push to boost single mothers’ college success rates.
The national nonprofit Education Design Lab will oversee a structured process under which the four colleges will design, implement and scale efforts intended to dramatically improve single mothers’ success rates at the four institutions by addressing the unique needs of those women.
The other participating schools are Central New Mexico Community College, New York’s Monroe Community College and Louisiana’s Delgado Community College.
Each will launch a pilot effort to test strategies for single mothers’ academic success over six years.
Ivy Tech will launch its pilot effort at the Indianapolis, Muncie, Lafayette and Sellersburg campuses, but eventually expand across its 19-campus system.
