As expected, the Purdue University Trustees have approved the broad outlines of a plan to realign Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne.

But unlike the vast majority of the board’s votes, Friday’s was not without its dissenters.

Some trustees worry there isn’t enough detail in the plan, outside of noting which programs are slated for elimination or for a switch from one school’s governance to the other.

Others say they’re concerned the agreement may become a financial drain on Purdue.
