Welcome to the 2011-12 Data Digest
Welcome to the 2011-12 Purdue University Data Digest. This twelfth edition contains current information on a variety of topics for the Purdue University System campuses, with a special focus on the West Lafayette campus. Highlights include metrics for year three of the progress on Purdue’s New Synergies Strategic Plan and two new pages on Purdue’s Research Cores. These core facilities provide access to tools for conducting research, to professional expertise and to research collaboration.
A new website on rankings, featured at the left of this page, highlights some of Purdue’s top ranked programs including the US News and World Report number one national ranking of the Biological/Agricultural engineering programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
We thank the many offices and individuals across the university system who provide the data for this publication. Additionally, we would like to especially recognize Ottlie Webb from the Office of Institutional Research whose commitment and dedication ensures that the Data Digest is a useful, and easy to access resource for those interested in the official data about Purdue University.

Executive Director of Strategic Planning and Assessment
