Governor Mitch Daniels says he’s been preparing for his job as Purdue president since he was appointed in June. He told reporters Monday he has been meeting formally and informally with administrators and faculty members. Daniels says he’s talking with student leaders as well.
"I've seen a spectrum of people. That will go on, really, indefinitely. I want to do as much as I can now, where I have the chance."
He admits he can’t be fully ready in January when he takes on the role of president, but says some knowledge is better than none.
