Purdue University Global launches Purdue Global Moves

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue University Global on Friday (June 11) launched its inaugural Purdue Global Moves – four strategic initiatives designed to help the university meet its goals of results, growth and innovation.

Chancellor Frank Dooley presented the Purdue Global Moves to the Purdue Global Board of Trustees at its public meeting on the West Lafayette campus.

Purdue Global Moves are motivated by and closely aligned with Purdue University’s Next Moves. Three of the moves – Student Success, Professional Skills and Classroom of the Future – tie to the Purdue University Next Move Transformative Education 2.0. The fourth Purdue Global move focuses on Equity.

“Purdue Global Moves will drive action plans that in turn will guide our priorities, strategies and efforts into the future,” Dooley said.

Purdue Global will implement action plans in the following areas:

  • Student Success: Design a holistic, proactive retention program leveraging technology solutions and policies and processes designed for working adults.
  • Professional Skills: Integrate skills and anchor university programs to help students build and understand skills sought by employers.
  • Classroom of the Future: Identify and use transformative learning technologies, models and schedules to enable more effective, authentic, engaging, transferable and efficient learning.

Purdue Global will take actions and implement initiatives to expand diversity so that Purdue Global embodies all – a global, multicultural community of students, faculty and staff.

These efforts also support Purdue Global’s continued mission of growth and innovation. This work will identify new educational offerings, programs, products and markets that expand access and provide opportunities for working adult learners to reach their career goals.
