Monthly Conversation With Mitch Daniels: Brain Gain And Placemaking

Jae Lee

While he was governor, Mitch Daniels talked a lot about reversing Indiana’s worrying “brain drain” trend. A dismal number of Hoosiers complete college, and many who do venture outside the state to make their way in the world. But now Purdue’s President has a plan for “brain gain.” We ask him about it on this month’s edition of WBAA’s Monthly Conversation with Mitch Daniels.

Also on this month’s show, a blogger takes a look at how President Daniels views a current urban design buzzword: placemaking. We’ll ask whether the thought process that helped envision a State Street overhaul has evolved from one which got the former governor criticized for allowing construction of an Interstate-69 extension that some derisively called the “zebra highway.”
