ROCHESTER, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College recently added Gloria Carvey to its Rochester Outreach Site to serve as full-time site director. The long-time Rochester resident joins Beth Clair, the current part-time outreach coordinator who will continue in her current role as the outreach office’s admissions and advising counselor.

As director of the Rochester Outreach Site, Carvey will be responsible for managing the academic affairs, student affairs and facilities of the Ivy Tech site soon to be located at the Rochester Learning Center. She will be in charge of establishing a Fulton County Advisory Board as well as creating and developing noncredit personal enrichment and professional development courses for Fulton and surrounding counties.

Carvey brings a wealth of college administrative and instructional experience with her to her new position. She began her career in education as a teacher in the Argos and Rochester school systems. At Ivy Tech, she’s held numerous positions at the Kokomo and Logansport campuses, including basic skills instructor, Learning Resource Center coordinator, general education instructor, student affairs manager, associate dean of student affairs, and most recently, assistant director of workforce and economic development. Throughout her 26 years with Ivy Tech, Carvey has earned a number of awards for her excellence in instruction, leadership and management and has earned several professional certifications. She is active in the Rochester community as a member of Kiwanis, the Lake Manitou Association, and Women of the Moose as well as a past volunteer for United Way and many other local organizations.

Carvey holds a Master of Arts degree in executive development from Ball State University, a Bachelor of Arts degree in secondary education from Purdue University, and has completed a significant amount of graduate-level course work in secondary education at Indiana University Kokomo.

Ivy Tech’s Rochester Outreach Site, currently located at 1009 W. 3rd St, will relocate to the Rochester Learning Center, 1818 Park Road, upon the facility’s completion in August. In addition to the nine academic for-credit classes the college will be offering at its new location this fall, it also will be offering 14 noncredit personal enrichment and professional development classes on topics such as food safety, computer basics, and supervision and management.
