Purdue president Mitch Daniels says the university’s on-time completion rate is “unacceptable.”
A recent report by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education indicates that only about 30-percent of students at the state‘s four-year public colleges and universities finish school within four years.
At Purdue 37-percent of non-transferring students seeking bachelor’s degrees graduate within four years at the West Lafayette campus.
Daniels says the university has a number of programs in place to help more students finish on-time.
Purdue is moving forward with the preparation of a plan that would unify the administration of the university's two northwest Indiana campuses.
The effort stems from a joint proposal by Purdue University Calumet chancellor Thomas Keon and Purdue University North Central James Dworkin to collaborate on a detailed implementation plan for presentation later this year.
