Data Digest

Welcome to the 2010-11 Purdue University Data Digest. This year it includes a newly organized section which features the diversity of our students, faculty and staff, along with information on Institutional Resources for Diversity and Inclusion. The Diversity Section displays the new federally mandated race/ethnicity categories. Because these new categories differ significantly from historical data, care should be taken when making trend comparisons. For more details, see:
Minority Reporting at Purdue.

This year’s edition also features expanded information on Purdue’s research centers and institutes. In addition, metrics for year two of the progress on Purdue’s New Synergies Strategic Plan are reported, as well as updated information on the regional campuses and system-wide summaries.

Prior users will note that the website has a new look with enhanced navigation and an interactive campus map. The Data Digest can be printed in its entirety or by individual pages.

We hope that the Data Digest continues to be a useful resource for those interested in the official data about Purdue.
