South Bend Tribune
The Indiana Commission for Higher Education on Thursday voted unanimously to grant necessary approvals that will allow Purdue University to launch and oversee NewU, its new affiliated institution.
Purdue announced in April that it would buy for-profit Kaplan University and create a new public university designed to expand access to higher education. Kaplan is primarily a distance learning institution that also has 15 physical locations across the country, including an Indianapolis campus.
The vote came at the commission's meeting in New Albany.
