Walt Disney got it right when he said, ‘You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.’

Jeffrey Scott is the chancellor for Ivy Tech Community College for the Muncie campus service area, which includes Delaware and Henry counties.

Jeff first came to Ivy Tech as an adjunct faculty in January of 2001. In the fall of 2004, he was selected as program chair for the criminal justice program for the East Central Region (Anderson, Marion, and Muncie campuses). Since that time, Scott has had progressive leadership appointments, including division chair, dean of schools of public and social services, education, computing and informatics, and business. He was appointed to serve in a bi-regional role as dean for the same schools in both the East Central and Richmond regions. In May of 2017, he was appointed as the bi-regional interim vice chancellor of Academic Affairs. He was then appointed as the vice chancellor of Academic Affairs for the Muncie and Henry County campuses in September of 2017.

Jeff is an assistant professor of criminal justice and human services and continues to enjoy teaching policy classes and advising students. An advocate of innovative learning environments, Jeff was instrumental in developing and implementing the plan to create Chesterfields Café, a student learning lab for the culinary arts program that provides a strong presence in the Muncie community. 

Jeff earned his Bachelor of Science in criminal justice and political science from Ball State University and his master’s degree in social work from Indiana University. Prior to joining Ivy Tech, he was involved in leadership roles in probation and court services, as well as with private agencies in juvenile and behavioral treatment services.
