Our Culture

We’re highly collaborative, with a friendly and helpful culture that is very different from a four-year college. Innovation is another value that sets us apart — we are always looking for ways to make things better for our students, faculty, and staff. One of our key goals is to foster creativity and innovation in employees. More than anything, you’ll find yourself inspired each day by the camaraderie, positivity, and dedication that surrounds you at Ivy Tech.
