PURDUE EYES WESLEY FOUNDATION FOR DANIELS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS EXPANSION
When Purdue first announced in fall 2022 plans to develop a new undergraduate business school, aiming to make it a Top 10 program in seven years with a retooled focus on STEM-oriented entrepreneurship, the university said it would plant a new, 125,000-square-foot academic building to house some of the 50 new faculty it expected to hire.
The question was: Where would that building go?
The answer, formally coming Friday morning, involves relocating the oldest campus ministry near Purdue.
Purdue trustees are slated at Friday’s meeting to consider a deal to buy the Wesley Foundation of Purdue property at 435 Mitch Daniels Blvd., which has been tucked at the corner of Daniels Boulevard and Sheetz Street for more than a century. The property is next door to the Krannert School of Management Building.
Trustees also will consider a deal to sell land to Wesley Foundation for a new home near campus.
