He credits the increase in funding from the General Assembly on Purdue doing well on the performance-based metrics the state uses to partly fund higher education. The state also is giving Purdue $50 million to build the Active Learning Center, which is designed to make classes more collaborative, instead of strictly lectures.

Daniels also talks about the academic profile of the incoming class for fall of 2013.
