Regional Chamber backs changes for IPFW

The Journal Gazette

The Regional Chamber of Northeast Indiana’s board of directors has endorsed a state legislative study committee’s recommendation that IPFW become a campus within the Purdue University system, with an enhanced commitment to educational and research opportunities.

The study committee’s report released last week recommended that Purdue University assume governance over the Fort Wayne campus, while Indiana University would maintain the presence of the IU Medical School and enhance its health science and medical education programs in the region, including a commitment to create the inaugural Health Science Education and Research Center.

The Regional Chamber’s 17-member board includes executives from several of northeast Indiana’s largest employers representing manufacturing, health care, retail, construction, financial services and higher education.
