WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue University President Mitch Daniels will join executives from Gallup and Lumina Foundation on Tuesday (May 6) as results are presented from the initial Gallup-Purdue Index National Report, a comprehensive, nationally representative study of college graduates with Internet access living in the United States.

The event, scheduled for 11:15 a.m. Eastern time at Gallup headquarters in Washington, D.C., will be webcast. The final report will be available at this link, which will become active at 3 a.m. Eastern time Tuesday (May 6).
