its fourth year of publication, the Purdue Data Digest has established
itself as a principal source of data on the West Lafayette campus.
Online and bound editions are frequently consulted as sources of
reliable and trustworthy data for decision-making activities at
all levels of the University.
This year we have expanded the Data Digest to include
information on the regional campuses: Calumet, North Central, and
Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne. In addition, this
volume of the Data Digest includes an array of detailed system-wide
facts and figures. This system-wide perspective found in one publication
will provide a valuable resource for anyone who is interested in
finding out detailed and broader information about Purdue.
As we have moved into the third year of Strategic
Plan implementation, Purdue University has adopted a theme that
represents our accomplishments in Learning, Discovery, and Engagement
— It’s Happening Here! The Data Digest also displays
the progress being made towards goals and the underlying sentiments
of our statement.
We hope that you will find value in this year’s
presentation of information on Purdue University.
