FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Ivy Tech officials hope to renovate a building and create a student service mall on its north campus in Fort Wayne.

Ivy Tech leaders unveiled plans for a $17. 4 million building renovation. The updated facility would provide a one-stop building for students seeking help with student services like enrollment, tutoring and career development, according to the Journal Gazette.

If the Indiana Commission for Higher Education votes to send funding for the project, Harshman Hall would get updates. Hershman Hall was built in 1965 as a children’s hospital. 

The building is currently described as mazelike with narrow corridors. Tutoring and academic advising are scattered around the building right now. Offices of registrar, financial aid offices and bursar are in a separate building.

Jerrilee Mosier, Ivy Tech’s chancellor for the Northeast Region, told the Journal Gazette the project is fourth on the priority list for Ivy Tech campuses statewide.
