US Rep. Brooks says she’s not seeking Ivy Tech presidency

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) – Republican U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks says she won’t apply to become the new president of Ivy Tech Community College.

Brooks was a vice president and general counsel for Ivy Tech for five years before being elected to Congress in 2012.

Brooks had been considered a potential candidate to lead Indiana’s community college system, a position which Republican Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann is leaving office to pursue.

Brooks tells The (Anderson) Herald Bulletin  that she loves what she’s doing and is focused on her re-election campaign for central Indiana’s 5th Congressional District seat.

The Ivy Tech board has set a March 15 application deadline for the president’s position and expects to make a selection by the end of April.
