Purdue University is a major research university founded in 1869 to further the study of agriculture and engineering. Its 1,579-acre campus is located in West Lafayette, a large town 65 miles northwest of Indianapolis on the banks of the Wabash River. Purdue University has regional campuses in four other cities, two of which are jointly administered with Indiana University, and in 11 locations throughout the state where the School of Technology’s statewide delivery program is offered. Purdue is on a semester system.

Purdue University offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in over 200 different programs in its 12 academic schools. The list of recommended high school courses for admission is a range: For general admission, the minimum is necessary; for selected programs (agriculture, science engineering, health sciences, management), the upper levels of math and science are needed.

Distance learning plays a significant role in Purdue University’s Instructional mission. Last year, 9,505 learners participated in 132 West Lafayette-based distance learning programs, in which learners are separated from instructors by place or time or both. These include credit and noncredit courses delivered by two-way videoconferencing, videotape, the Internet, and correspondence. Learners include college students, engineers, school administrators, pest control and healthcare workers, and other. In accordance with Purdue’s March 2000 Strategic Plan for Distance Learning, distance learning programs are administered by Continuing Education in cooperation with the academic units. Continuing Education also assists faculty in conceptualizing, developing, delivering, and administering distance learning activities. Programs to enhance faculty use of distance learning strategies are offered by Continuing Education and the Multimedia Instructional Development Center.
