INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Ivy Tech Community College will receive a $2.5 million federal grant for job training in information technology and cybersecurity.

The funding announced by the White House on Monday will help Ivy Tech establish and expand information technology labs on 24 campuses and 10 to 12 data centers to train students majoring in network infrastructure and server administration. The money also will help expand a virtual data lab center for distance education and provide professional development for faculty.

Ivy Tech says its new School of Computing and Informatics anticipates more than 4,000 students will complete one or more credentials and land new or better jobs during the grant period.
