Ivy Tech Community College officials are working on plans for $43 million in Muncie construction projects, including converting a vacant downtown office building into classroom space, the StarPress reports.
Other planned projects include renovations at Ivy Tech’s campus on Muncie’s south side. Ivy Tech spokeswoman Jennifer Gasiorek told the local newspaper that school officials are still in the project’s preliminary planning stages.
Ivy Tech has owned the downtown building that previously was The StarPress office since 2009. The school currently has business and education classes in the former Ball Corp. headquarters building a couple blocks away and criminal justice, social services and culinary arts programs at another downtown building.
The funding plan includes $38.7 million in state money and $4.3 million from local fundraising, according to the report..
