Fort Wayne, Ind.—Indiana Tech’s College of Professional Studies will celebrate the opening of its new location in Munster, Ind., with a ribbon cutting and open house from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. Tuesday, October 26. University and community leaders will be on hand for the ribbon cutting, and prospective students will have the opportunity to learn more about available programs and tour the facility.
Indiana Tech has offered classes in northwest Indiana since 2007, and moved into the Munster facility in August 2010 to accommodate growing enrollment. The new Indiana Tech facility at 9245 Calumet Ave. has four classrooms, a computer lab, and admissions staff offices.
“We’re very excited about this expansion in northwest Indiana,” said Steve Herendeen, vice president of the College of Professional Studies. “It allows the university to more effectively serve working adults in the area who need to further their education.”
The College of Professional Studies offers undergraduate and graduate programs in an accelerated format. The program is designed to accommodate nontraditional students who also have to balance work, family, and community responsibilities. Each course meets once a week for five-week or six-week sessions, allowing students to attend full-time without sacrificing other commitments.
The career-oriented programs in fields such as accounting, business administration, criminal justice, human services and organizational leadership cater to working adults by focusing on contemporary topics in the corporate world. Faculty members have real world experience in addition to academic credentials, allowing them to blend textbook theory with workplace reality.
In addition to northwest Indiana and the main campus in Fort Wayne, the College of Professional Studies also has locations in Elkhart, Fishers, Greenwood, Huntington, Indianapolis, Kendallville, Mishawaka, New Albany, Plainfield, and Warsaw. Accelerated degree programs are also available online.
