A public hearing on proposed Purdue tuition and fees to be paid by students attending any of the university’s campuses during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years will be held Friday, May 27 and can be viewed via videoconference at Purdue University Calumet.
The videoconference of the hearing, held at Purdue’s West Lafayette campus, begins at 11:30 a.m., Northwest Indiana time, in Room 150 of Purdue Calumet’s Student Union & Library.
