E Region Education

The Evansville region is home to award-winning universities, seven colleges, the third largest public-school corporation in Indiana, Career & Tech opportunities, and the #10 Best Charter School in the Nation! View our region’s universities, programs producing the greatest number of graduates, and more.


The competitive cost of doing business, the ability to recruit and retain talent from local and regional universities and the great working relationships we have forged with the local and state governments are some of the reasons why SS&C selected and continues to grow in Evansville.
