MUNCIE, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College officials are working on plans for $43 million in Muncie construction projects, including converting a vacant downtown office building into classroom space.

Other planned projects include renovations at Ivy Tech’s campus on Muncie’s south side. Ivy Tech spokeswoman Jennifer Gasiorek tells The Star Press that school officials are still in the preliminary planning stages for the project.

Ivy Tech has owned the downtown building that previously was The Star Press office since 2009. The school currently has business and education classes in the former Ball Corp. headquarters building a couple blocks away and criminal justice, social services and culinary arts programs at another downtown building.

The funding plan includes $38.7 million in state money and $4.3 million from local fundraising.
