Improved student retention, higher national rankings, record research funding, and a broad portfolio of student and faculty achievements point to a Purdue University "on the move," said President France A. Córdova on Tuesday (Feb. 23) in her annual State of the University address.

A singular focus on student success has made a difference, Córdova said, describing efforts to improve undergraduate teaching and support programs, such as Boiler Gold Rush, Signals and Hotseat, that contribute to improved learning. Student retention reached an all-time high, at 87 percent, for 2008-09.
