WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A $500,000 prize is being awarded at Purdue for creating a new three-year communication degree.
The Brian Lamb School of Communication has created a way to help students save money by completing their degrees more quickly. As News 18 reported in January, the prize is being funded through the president’s office.
In an open letter in January, Mitch Daniels started a universitywide competition to create a three-year program. He is also offering $500,000 to the department or program that creates the first competency-based program.
That winner will be announced later this month.
