The head of Ivy Tech’s Evansville campus is stepping down.
Chancellor Jonathan Weinzapfel is resigning his position to join the law firm Jones Wallace LLC, an Evansville legal firm providing service to mid-size tri-state businesses, as partner.
In a release, Ivy Tech says Weinzapfel’s last day at the community college will be November 30th.
Evansville Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Kelly Cozart, will serve as the campus interim chancellor.
In the release, Weinzapfel said he enjoyed his five-plus years at Ivy Tech.
He said the mission of providing people a “head start on a great career or a solid foundation to earn their baccalaureate degree is vital to the future of our state and its communities.”
Weinzapfel, a former Evansville mayor and state representative, began his tenure at Ivy Tech in May 2014, as chancellor of the newly merged Evansville and Terre Haute campuses and their associated sites.
In 2017, the two regions separated, and he remained chancellor in Evansville.
