WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) —  As is customary with the start of the spring semester at Purdue University, President Mitch Daniels released his annual open letter Monday. 

In it, he details Purdue's innovation, NewU progression, academic rigor, and affordability and access over the past year.

Daniels even outlines a problem he wants to address in 2018.

He said, "Less amusing but more damaging is a chaotic environment in which a person in one college is often paid dramatically more than a counterpart doing the same job in another unit...During 2018, we will reform this mess."
