WEST LAFAYETTE — Purdue University President Mitch Daniels has made his mark quickly as he adjusts to his new job after leaving the governor's office.Daniels has frozen tuition for the West Lafayette campus, limited staff raises and cut the position of the university's marketing administrator since taking Purdue's helm Jan. 14.

Even some initially skeptical of Daniels' appointment tell the Journal & Courier they're pleased by his willingness to listen to other ideas.

Incoming University Senate chairman David Williams praised Daniels' reversal on a plan to eliminate merit raises for staff making $50,000 or more. Daniels scrapped the idea less than a month after announcing the pay freeze and opted instead for a 1 percent merit increase for faculty and staff.

The move is expected to save Purdue $7 million.
