INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ivy Tech says it’s shifting its Franklin campus into its central Indiana region as part of a system-wide reconfiguration.

The shift follows several Ivy Tech consolidations, including those of the Columbus and southeast regions and of the Bloomington and Evansville regions.

Franklin is in Johnson County, which previously was divided between two Ivy Tech regions.

Franklin executive director Tina Gross says nearly 60 percent of the 1,200 students who study at the campus about 20 miles south of Indianapolis live in counties within Ivy Tech’s central Indiana region.

Officials say the realignment is aimed at making Ivy Tech operations more efficient and increasing student retention.

The Franklin campus’ enrollment has nearly tripled since 2008, from fewer than 500 students to more than 1,200.
