WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Purdue University Senate is thanking other Big Ten schools after some opposed the Kaplan deal.

The senate passed a resolution of appreciation to faculty members at Michigan State University and the University of Nebraska on Monday.

This comes after the two universities passed resolutions opposing the Kaplan deal. The merger is now known as Purdue University Global.

The senate will send a thank you letter to the schools for showing their support.

"I think it's important for the Higher Learning Commission to take note that we have two separate faculties and senates from two separate universities also supporting our efforts," said Purdue Faculty Senate Chair, Alberto Rodriguez. "And there is concern because they're realizing that what's happening at Purdue isn't just happening at Purdue."

The Kaplan special committee within the senate is expected to meet next Monday for the first time, to go over questions. The committee will then report its findings to the senate at the next meeting.
