Purdue University President Mitch Daniels has announced a more than $2 billion fundraising campaign. “Ever True: The Campaign for Purdue University” will focus on three priorities: “Place Students First,” “Build on Our Strengths” and “Champion Research and Innovation.” The university says the goal is to raise the money by 2019, which is the 150th anniversary year of Purdue’s founding.
President Daniels made the announcement Friday night.
“Today we unveil a campaign that will elevate our university’s reputation for research excellence and intellectual achievement in a new era of accountability in higher education. The legacy of more than 450,000 alumni inspires the entire Purdue family to invest in our students and faculty and foster the contributions that Purdue extends to Indiana and to all corners of the globe,” Daniels said.
Purdue says the campaign will include its regional campuses: Purdue Calumet, Purdue North Central and Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne.
