As promised, Purdue President Mitch Daniels is letting the campus community know the direction he’d like to lead the university. Daniels released an open letter to students, faculty and staff Friday.
In it, he recaps the research he’s done on higher education since his appointment by the board of trustees. He wants an open discussion on some themes he’d like to address. Those are: excellence, affordability, shared governance, engagement, open inquiry, and common purpose. One specific area is boosting graduation rates.
