About the O'Bannon Institute for Community Service:
The O'Bannon Institute is Ivy Tech Community College- Bloomington's annual signature event that brings focus to community service, service learning, and civic engagement. The O’Bannon Institute is an annual opportunity for the community to come together to discuss topics related to nonprofits, education and political and civic service. Previous speakers at the Institute include former U.S. Senators, Pulitzer prize-winning authors, Governors, political advisers and columnists, a presidential candidate, and former First Lady of the United States, Laura W. Bush.

The O'Bannon Institute is named to honor the legacy of the late Governor Frank O'Bannon, in recognition of the role he played in the formation of Indiana's community college system and in commemoration of his lifetime commitment to community service.

Among Ivy Tech Bloomington's goals is that students graduate with academic achievement and a sense of responsibility to serve their communities.
