Ivy Tech Community College Tuesday morning announced the appointment of Janet Evelyn-Dorsey as dean of the School of Business for its East Central Region.

Evelyn-Dorsey, a former instructor and administrator at the State University of New York system, will oversee all business programs and faculty at Ivy Tech’s Anderson, Marion and Muncie campuses. She assumed her duties this month.

“We are confident her special expertise will help make our School of Business especially fitted to address the community need for new jobs in general and support small business in particular,” said Ronald Sloan, vice chancellor for academic affairs at Ivy Tech’s East Central Region, in a prepared statement.

Evelyn-Dorsey received her bachelor’s degree in business management and economics from the Herbert H. Lehman College in the Bronx and her MBA from Long Island University. She earned her doctorate in leadership for higher education from Capella University in Minneapolis. She also is a graduate of the Harvard Institute for Higher Education’s Management Development Program.

Evelyn-Dorsey held several different positions at the State University of New York during the past 16 years, including business adviser of its small business development center.

With more than 130,000 students, Ivy Tech is the state’s largest public college. It has 23 campuses in Indiana.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
