Purdue University plans to give one-time, $500 bonuses this spring to employees making less than $75,000 annually. President Mitch Daniels announced the initiative at the University Senate meeting Monday.
Daniels calls the bonus a “modest gesture” meant to thank staff for the work they do. He says that work allows the university to operate without raising tuition, which he announced will remain the same through the 2020-21 academic year. Tuition hasn’t gone up for Purdue students since 2012.
