Share Post

"During the Purdue Board of Trustees meeting earlier today, the trustees approved a resolution to designate 'Purdue University Fort Wayne' as the new name for the campus that will arise from the realignment process, pending approval of the realignment by the Higher Learning Commission. The campus will be commonly known as 'Purdue Fort Wayne' on the realignment effective date of July 1, 2018.

"We continue working with Purdue and IU to implement the realigned structure with a view toward making it a success for our students, our campus community, our city, and the northeast Indiana region. Today’s action brings us yet another step closer to solidifying the future of our campus.


"What is important for everyone to remember is this: Purdue Fort Wayne will have the same mission that sustained IPFW for more than 50 years: an unmatched commitment to student success and the community, its employers and our alumni. Now, with a clearer focus and as the region’s premier comprehensive public higher education institution, we are better positioned to provide a differentiated, unique experience to our students and contribute to the many endeavors in northeast Indiana aligned with our areas of impact.
