(INDIANAPOLIS) – Ivy Tech Community College Foundation is looking for a new president.

John Murphy announced his retirement today, which will be effective July 31.

Murphy has led the Ivy Tech Community College Foundation for the last eight years. For seven of those years, the Ivy Tech Foundation ranked first amongst community colleges in dollars raised, according to Voluntary Support of Education (VSE).
