Purdue University is partnering with the Whitley County Economic Development Corporation to offer an education program focused on assisting manufacturing businesses with adopting digital manufacturing technologies.

Construction class builds tiny home to help community

“Every semester I start by challenging the students and asking them how they want to change the world. This year we made a tiny home,” said Kirk Alter, associate professor of construction management at Purdue University.

The tiny home project will address the issue of housing for the homeless, battered women and people re-entering society from prison.

“One of the things that the students have learned,” Alter said, “is that we don’t need heroes, we need partners — partners in our communities.”
