NA’s Purdue campus has a new name: Purdue Polytechnic Institute.


Now, if we can just begin thinking about harnessing PPI and IUS into a unified effort to incubate economic activity in New Albany … viewing both as the capstones of geographical transport corridors to be transformed into multi-modal use for all residents … minimizing our perennial anti-intellectualism and maximizing possibilities …

We may need to find an economic development director capable of crawling out from inside self-imposed boxes.

Ah, and a boy can dream — and sometimes, even run for office.

Polytechnic for short: New Albany Purdue campus gets new name, by Jerod Clapp (Grudgingly New Albany)

NEW ALBANY — They’ve condensed the name, but expanded what they hope to offer to students in the region.

The Purdue Polytechnic Institute — formerly Purdue University College of Technology at New Albany — will share its name with all the regional campuses across the state.

Andrew Takami, director of the New Albany campus, said the name reflects the mission of those campuses, which stems from a concept that originated in New Albany.
