The summer semester ends August 2 at Purdue, but some administrators already are thinking about what to offer next year.
Provost Tim Sands says preliminary numbers show an enrollment increase of at least 10% from a year ago. He calls that positive, but administrators were hoping for more.
“Around the country, a lot of campuses reported decreases because the economy was improving and students were going out working. Somehow we managed to increase despite the overall trend,” he says, “but there’s a lot more to be done there.”
