Indiana University and Ivy Tech Community College, Lawrenceburg Campus, recently completed a six-year partnership and plan to continue to work together to meet the needs of Southeastern Indiana. Students can complete credits with both Ivy Tech and Indiana University via face-to-face classes with IU East at the Ivy Tech Lawrenceburg campus to earn a bachelor’s degree in business, elementary education, nursing or communication.
