Commission Studies Purdue’s Online Plan

WESTVILLE, Ind. — An Indiana education commission will vote on Purdue University’s plans to create a new online university.

University officials presented their plans for NewU to the Indiana Commission for Higher Education on Thursday, the Journal and Courier reported.

The online university would stem from Purdue’s recent acquisition of for-profit Kaplan University.

University President Mitch Daniels said he hopes the online option will help increase education access to those who didn’t finish college.
