After 11 years of dedicated leadership, Dr. Jerrilee K. Mosier will retire from her position as Chancellor of the Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne and Warsaw locations where she has worked diligently to advance student educational opportunities, faculty and staff development, and state, regional, and local partnerships.
She has forged partnerships with legislators, businesses and industry, community organizations and donors that have advanced the Ivy Tech mission of delivering accessible and affordable world-class education and adaptive learning to traditional and non-traditional students in Fort Wayne and the surrounding 11 counties in northeast Indiana.
Chancellor Mosier has awarded more than 24,000 associate degrees and certificates to students sending them on to succeed at partner institutions of higher education, high-wage careers, and other diverse directions to the benefit of our students, our employers, our economy, and our society, and she has expanded the areas of student engagement and support services to assist Ivy Tech students working toward completion of degrees and certificates.
The footprint of what began as Indiana Vocational Technical College 52 years ago has expanded physically under Chancellor Mosier’s leadership with the additions of the Aviation Center, the Auto Body Center, the Public Safety Academy, Parkview Education Center, the Warsaw Campus, the Greenhouse, and the Wabash site. Program offerings have also expanded and/or improved in the areas of EMS Skills, Information Assurance, Microsystems, Hospitality, Massage Therapy, Surgical Technology, Aviation, Biology, Diesel Technology, Patient Care, Agriculture, Psychology, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Technology, HVAC, Health Information Technology, Information Systems Security, and Pre-Engineering to encompass 231 degrees and certificates currently offered.
Acting as a champion for higher education through her belief that “community leaders, legislators, and our Ivy Tech faculty and staff … can move mountains and make access to high-quality education a reality for everyone,” Chancellor Mosier's legacy of learning will live on through this scholarship.
