An information technology veteran with 20 years of versatile experience in post-secondary education will join Purdue University Calumet and Purdue University North Central as Vice Chancellor of Information Services Nov. 1.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Four finalists for Purdue University Northwest chancellor will be on the Purdue Calumet and Purdue North Central campuses for two-day interviews over the next few weeks. Finalists will meet with various groups on both campuses and will make a public presentation at each campus.
Karen Schmid, vice chancellor for Academic Affairs for Purdue University North Central, also will assume responsibilities as interim vice chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost for Purdue University Calumet, following the recent resignation of Purdue Calumet Provost Peggy Gerard for family reasons. Thus, Schmid will serve both campuses in anticipation of the unification into Purdue University Northwest.
Purdue University has launched a national search to hire the first chancellor of Purdue University Northwest, an institution that will officially come into existence on July 1, 2016, as the result of the unification of Purdue University Calumet and Purdue University North Central.
