The new space also will allow college officials to increase their presence in the community.
“This brings us closer to government, civic, media and business leaders and other supporters of the college,” Daily said. “The proximity with the Excel Charter School and Kokomo Schools’ Central Middle School and its dormitories for international students provides opportunities to foster relationships with students whose educational journey could continue with Ivy Tech. ... It helps us create this synergy for education.”
The city of Kokomo acquired the building in June with the intent of bringing additional traffic and commercial redevelopment to downtown.
