Purdue Northwest picked as name of merged campuses

<![CDATA[WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Purdue University Northwest has been picked as the new name for the merger of the school's two regional campuses in northwestern Indiana. The university's board of trustees on Friday approved the name that will cover the current Purdue Calumet campus in Hammond and Purdue North Central in Westville. Purdue officials announced in February plans to combine the administration of the campuses while continuing to offer classes at both locations, which are about 35 miles apart and have a total of about 15,000 students. The new name will be phased in over the next two years, and mirrors the Indiana University Northwest name for IU's campus in Gary. Suggestions for the new name had included Purdue University Lakefront and Purdue University South Shore, reflecting the proximity of the campuses to Lake Michigan. Purdue Calumet Chancellor Thomas Keon said the name selection gives cohesiveness for the two campuses. "Coming together as Purdue University Northwest reflects our commitment to working closely together to create an even stronger presence in the many communities we serve," Keon said. The merger decision follows directives by Purdue's board and university President Mitch Daniels to cut administrative costs in order to increase affordability for students. Once the merger is complete, the sites will be known as the Purdue University Northwest-Calumet campus and the Purdue University Northwest-North Central campus, according to school officials. Current students aren't expected to see their coursework or graduation requirements change, while new students will still enroll at the campus location of their choice.
