Great. GM management. Hasn't the past 30+ years of GM's MISMANAGEMENT gotten them into the mess they are in today? Toyota now sells more cars. GM having trouble with profits, etc....

I hope this guy doesn't do the Ivy what has been done to GM!!!!

This is a sad, but not unpected, turn of events. Thomas J. Snyder may or may not do a solid job. We won't know for a while. What we do know -- at least those of us who are aware of Carol D'Amico's accomplishments -- is that she is an oustanding educator who, in the final analysis, is yet another victim of raw politics. Now she's gone, but hopefully she will latch on to another important position in education in Indiana, a state that needs all the help it can get when it comes to educating its young people.

What a dumb choice. There was a personvery knowledable and capable to do the job not chosen because of political party. I bet they are paying much bigger bucks to an outside MALE.

Please stick around in Indiana. There are those here who appreciate your talents and wisdom. And we don't hold it against you that you're Canadian. Hang in there!

Another educated, intelligent professional who found that education and intelligence in Indiana don't matter as much as old-boy farmer politics. I work in Ohio and want to urge her to apply out-of-state if Indiana doesn't appreciate her talents; in the long run, it's probably in her best interests (but not Indiana's).

I agree. For decades they blamed their workers, but a lot of those same workers and their children now make profitable products for Toyota, Honda, etc. That's proof that it was the company and NOT the workers.

This is a sad day for Ivy Tech. I teach part-time at Ivy Tech, but get most of my income as a full-time businessman. As such, I have come to appreciate the differences between the two. There is much to be said about learning from differing structures. That said, it is incomprehensible to bring someone who does not know a thing about education (and who has been part of the state's second-biggest business failure behind Conseco) in to run the state's primary community college system.

As a teacher, I constantly tell my students, "we can do better." Sadly, I wish someone had told that to the Ivy Tech Board. Ivy Tech is on the brink of explosive growth and can play a pivotal role in our state's workforce development. Accomplishing that will take someone in leadership who is more than a wannabe educator.

We can do better.

Great! THIS IS A DOUBLE VICTORY FOR IVY TECH. First, the arrogant, manipulating, backstabbing, poor communication and social skilled political hack did not get the president's job but now she is leaving us completely. Party time.

Oops, sounds like a personal beef here. What did she do to you, make you do your job maybe or change things for the better and you like it the way it is? Why so much hate in your message? Care to share?

Well, I don't know much about Ivy Tech but losing an experienced educator due to political backbiting and hiring some guy who lead the second worst Indiana business failure in recent years is just a bit much. How in the world does this happen at a community college that is supposed to be dedicated to educating the state's workforce? Only in Indiana, what a shame.

Sounds like if she could do the job she would have gotten it. But I guess the best person got it. Its best she does leave and now let Ivy move ahead.

Toyota doesn't have a union. Hopefully Ivy Tech won't get one and then everything will be fine. Unions kill jobs. Eastern Airlines, Delco Remy, GM, The Atlas supermarket on College... the list is pretty long.

management ran the companies NOT the workers, the union just provided a decent living
