As a newcomer to the state’s higher education scene, WGU Indiana has been working hard to get its name out. The online program has a high-profile endorser in Gov. Mitch Daniels, who signed an executive order last year to establish the first statewide branch of Western Governors University, which is based in Salt Lake City. Daniels has appeared in the institution’s advertising, which promotes WGU Indiana as a way for those with many life responsibilities to earn college credit at their own pace. “The real focus is on helping adult learners, people with some college but who didn’t get a degree make themselves more marketable,” Chancellor Allison Barber said. WGU Indiana offers more than 50 bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
