WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (The Exponent) – Purdue’s tuition freeze has been extended for the 2015-16 academic year. President Mitch Daniels thanked the trustees for endorsing the extension as part of the affordability and accessibility goal for the Purdue Moves campaign.

Purdue’s Board of Trustees honored University faculty and approved a number of resolutions for campus projects, including several for the Purdue Moves initiative, on Thursday afternoon.

As a testament to their dedication to the University, Al Diaz and Tim Sands were presented with the Distinguished Hoosier Award. The award is meant to honor individuals with long, distinguished records for their contributions to the University and the State.

The trustees also approved the appointment of Wayne Wright as the Barbara I. Cook Chair of Literacy and Language, effective Aug. 18.
