Purdue Polytechnic's "intriguing new ideas" are "well-matched to the moment," he says
In a forum with faculty and staff, Purdue President Mitch Daniels expressed strong support for the Purdue Polytechnic Institute and the College of Technology's transformative efforts.
"Many of you have come forward with very intriguing new ideas about a new pedagogy and a new direction for this college, and I have become enormously excited about it," President Daniels said.
Opportunities for innovation and improvement abound on the Purdue University campus. That is true for students, for faculty and staff, and definitely for an academic unit like the College of Technology.
