GARY, Ind. (AP) - Ivy Tech Community College is shutting down its Gary campus and shifting many of its classes to a building it shares with Indiana University Northwest.

Ivy Tech officials say they are also looking to move its trades program to a career center operated by the Gary Community School Corp. Those moves will leave Garyís Ivy Tech campus vacant when fall semester classes begin.

Ivy Tech Lake County President Louie Gonzalez tells The Post-Tribune that the school will remain alive and thriving in the city. He says the changes will help balance the campus budget, which is facing a $2 million deficit.

Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson says she hopes a new use is found for the Ivy Tech facility so the city isnít left with more empty buildings.
