Ivy Tech-Northeast’s influential leader decides she’ll stay put

Chancellor Jerrilee Mosier was on the short list of candidates to lead a college in Kirkland, Wash., but sent an email to staff Wednesday informing them that she’s decided, after much deliberation, that she belongs at Ivy Tech Community College-Northeast.

Mosier was among five finalists for the president’s job at Lake Washington Institute of Technology.

She participated in a public interview session on April 22 at the college. Prior to her appointment at Ivy Tech in 2010, she was vice president of workforce development at Edmonds Community College in Lynnwood, Wash.

“My status as finalist for a presidency position was an exploration of possible career opportunities,” Mosier said in a statement released Wednesday. “A decision regarding a move was not made lightly.

“Professionally, there are so many exciting things going on at Ivy Tech-Northeast and northeast Indiana. I thoroughly enjoy working with our campus community, as well as the people in the communities throughout our region.

“Personally, (husband) Russ and I have made very good friends here, and we love living here.”

Mosier has been a positive force at Ivy Tech, forging strong relationships with employers and other educators in the region. Her departure would have been a loss felt beyond the campus.
