Annual Open Letter to the People of Purdue from Mitch Daniels

January 2016

As I wish everyone a sincere Happy 2016, I could venture to hope for a year as generally successful as the one just passed. Our university saw record applications from an entering class that set another record for academic qualifications; record research grants; record numbers of patents, licenses, and startup companies; and record donations, all by substantial margins over the previous highs. But as our athletic coaches would remind us, we are only as good as our next game, so this letter, like its predecessors, will studiously face forward, addressing four broad topics that I hope are of interest to us all.
