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
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.

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.
