Ivy Tech Community College's President Sue Ellspermann is looking forward to seeing what Dominick Chase can accomplish on the Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities.
Gov. Eric Holcomb appointed Chase to the council for the next two years. Chase is the chief financial officer and senior vice president of business affairs for the college.
“Dom has truly redefined what excellence in leadership looks like both in the world of higher education and now through intentional, high-impact board service,” Ellspermann said in a press release. “We are incredibly proud of his contributions to the college and our state, and look forward to seeing what he will accomplish to elevate people with disabilities in communities across Indiana.”
The council serves people with developmental and other disabilities in Indiana with grant funding, policy direction and training.
At the college, Chase oversaw the distribution of Higher Education Emergency Relief funds, with a focus on reducing the cost of textbooks and other materials students need to learn.
“I am deeply honored to serve on the Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities,” Chase said. “I look forward to working with the council on innovative and inclusive solutions that eliminate barriers and improve the lives of our fellow Hoosiers.”
Chase earned a Master of Business Administration from Butler University with a concentration in finance and a Bachelor of Arts in economics from Indiana University.
