Purdue backs IPFW cuts, tuition freeze

– Purdue University trustees have approved a tentative budget that includes a tuition freeze at the main campus in West Lafayette and spending cuts at two regional campuses, including IPFW.

Trustees on Friday approved the $1.2 billion systemwide plan. School officials say the board’s executive committee will vote May 22 on the tuition rates after a public hearing. Purdue intends to hire 30 new engineering faculty members over the next five years.

The general fund budget will grow by about 2 percent at West Lafayette. Budgets will be reduced by about 2.5 percent at Purdue Calumet and 1.2 percent at IPFW.
