Mitch Daniels and Purdue University Tuition Freeze


"Purdue University's streak of flat tuition will continue for another year. President Mitch Daniels has announced tuition at Purdue will remain at 2012 levels through the 2018-2019 academic year.

This is the sixth consecutive year tuition has remained flat at Purdue. The university says the extension ensures that four graduating classes will have gone through Purdue without experiencing a tuition increase. Additionally, Daniels announced a 2.5 percent merit raise pool for employees this year."

So how is Mitch Daniels doing at Purdue? How is this happening? I think part of it is an increase in state appropriations after a long series of reductions, but I have not found really good numbers (the method or reporting the budget changed from 2012 to now). Is what he doing applicable to other institutions?

1. I assume it's the state budget that's changed reporting methods.

If you can't learn it donor-side, check revenue-side at Perdue.


A quick glance suggests that from 2015/16 to 2016/17 state appropriations increased quite a bit.
