Welcome to the 2012-13 Data DigestThe thirteenth edition of the Purdue Data Digest contains updated information about the Purdue University System including West Lafayette, Calumet, North Central, IPFW, ten Statewide Technology sites, and the IUPUI programs of Engineering and Technology, and Science. The 2012-13 Purdue University Data Digest provides student and workforce data through the Fall Semester 2012 and financial data through the 2012 fiscal year (ending June 30, 2012). This publication is available to anyone interested in finding detailed, historical information about Purdue’s people, resources, and activities.
New this year is information on sustainability that can be found in the Additional Facts and Figures Section. One of the key priorities in the New Synergies Strategic Plan, the sustainability data includes three broad environmental categories of energy, water, and waste. Purdue’s Office of University Sustainability was formed in August of 2011 and is charged with providing the vision and organizational strategy that will foster Purdue’s commitment to find innovative ways to live sustainably.
Thank you to all of the individuals across the West Lafayette campus, as well as those from the regional campuses, who provided information for the Digest. We invite your comments and welcome suggestions for future editions.

Executive Director of Strategic Planning and Assessment
