Purdue University Acquiring Kaplan University

Purdue University Logo

Purdue President Mitch Daniels announced that Purdue would acquire Kaplan University.  That announcement has drawn the ire of Purdue faculty, who found out about the acquisition when the announcement was made.  Obviously the negotiations to buy Kaplan had to be done in private as Kaplan’s owner is a publicly traded company.  However, this has raised shared governance issues that could draw scrutiny from Purdue’s accrediting body, the Higher Learning Commission.
