A shift to trimesters would engage every aspect of the Purdue West Lafayette campus, from people to mission (research, teaching and engagement) to space to campus life to time and much more. The rationale for switching to a trimester academic calendar includes more flexibility for students, faculty and staff, a greater utilization of university facilities, and a strengthened local economy. However, before considering such a move, the entire campus will engage in a deliberate and judicious consideration of how such a change would affect Purdue. This site is a resource and communication tool for this process.
As our work progresses, more and more information will be made available. There is no definitive timetable or schedule.
