GOSHEN, Ind. -- An Ivy Tech campus in northern Indiana is raising funds for an advanced manufacturing training center.

Ivy Tech executive director for resource development Tom Kilian and Thomas Coley, chancellor of its north central and northwest regions, told the Elkhart County Redevelopment Commission on Thursday the new training program at its Elkhart County campus would turn out about 400 graduates annually with a mix of certificates and degrees.

They say the center would address a growing skills gap among workers and prepare students to enter manufacturing jobs. It would specialize in the automotive and recreational vehicle industries.

Kilian says Ivy Tech has drawn in about $2 million in donations for the new training center. The Elkhart Truth reports the redevelopment commission expects to vote on the funding next month.
