Purdue University plans to extend its tuition freeze into the 2018-2019 school year.

President Mitch Daniels made the announcement of a sixth year of tuition flatlining Monday, touting the amount of money the school says students and their families have saved as a result.

“If tuition had been raised at Purdue just in lockstep with the national average, Purdue families would by now have spent here more than $225 million," Daniels says. "Instead, they have those dollars.”

Mitch Daniels came into the Purdue presidency vowing to stay away from politics as he pursued a job in academic administration.

But when you’re arguably the most popular Republican in a red state, and when conservative columnists regularly call for your return to partisan life, it can be hard to stick to such proclamations.

The new chairman of the Purdue Senate Friday opened his term in office by calling for more transparency from the Purdue Board of Trustees and school administrators.

Biology professor David Sanders, who’s also a Democratic member of the West Lafayette City Council, used the Jewish parable of the “red heifer” – in which a Rabbi explains what Sanders calls a “strange tradition” to a pagan -- to gently admonish the Trustees to publicly address not just what’s good about Purdue, but what needs improvement, as well.

A Purdue professor says Ebola is ‘primed‘ to go airborne.

In the first case of Ebola transmission in the United States, a Texas nurse who treated an Ebola-stricken Liberian man has tested positive for the deadly virus.

Professor David Sanders has been studying the virus since 2003 – specifically how this particular Zaire strain of Ebola enters human cells.

While the virus has thus far only been shown to be transferred via bodily fluids, Sanders argues that it could become airborne.
