The College President Who Simply Won’t Raise Tuition
Daniel Ferguson, The Atlantic
Much of the attention on Purdue University's president these days concerns the all-important number of 9,992. Not only is that the dollar amount an in-state student will pay Purdue for tuition and fees next year, it also is the amount such a student paid Purdue when Mitch Daniels became president in 2013.
The university also has reduced the price of food services and textbooks. An undergraduate degree from Purdue, in other words, is less expensive today than it was when Daniels arrived.
