At Purdue, faculty passed a resolution that called out the university for failing to seek their input on the plan and requested inclusion in future decisions made about the new online university. The resolution came after a special University Senate meeting in which faculty grilled Purdue President Mitch Daniels and other officials on the deal. The Indiana Conference of the American Association of University Professors also released a statement that said it “objects strenuously” to the deal, while another statement opposing the deal was penned by faculty members from Indiana public universities. Purdue held a listening session on its West Lafayette campus Friday for faculty and staff to generate questions and ideas about potential academic opportunities with the new university.
