Indianapolis ceremony welcomes attendees from 41 states, Germany,
Bermuda

INDIANAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Purdue University Global, a public nonprofit online
institution of higher education
, conferred degrees for more than 600
graduates during two ceremonies on May 18 in Indianapolis, Ind.,
recognizing them for their academic achievements and celebrating their
success.

Among those speaking at the commencements were President of Purdue
University Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr., Chancellor of Purdue University
Global Dr. Betty Vandenbosch and keynote speaker Dennis E. Bland,
president of the Center for Leadership Development.

Based in Indianapolis, Purdue University Global was created one year ago
when Purdue University acquired Kaplan University to expand its
land-grant mission by providing access to higher education for millions
of working adults, personalized to their needs. More than 9,000 Purdue
University Global students will earn degrees this year, including those
attending the Indianapolis graduation ceremonies.

During the ceremonies at the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis, Dr.
Vandenbosch conferred degrees to graduates who traveled from 41 states
as well as Bermuda, Germany and the Virgin Islands to attend. The
ceremony was broadcast on Facebook
Live
for graduates and family members unable to be there in person.

“Today, you’re crossing one finish line and setting your sights on
starting the next stage of your life’s journey,” she told graduates.
“Each of you had a unique path that brought you here today that shaped
who you were in the classroom, and who you will be in the workforce.”

Dr. Vandenbosch noted that Purdue Global students are primarily adult
learners and pointed to some of the ways that makes them distinctive.
Nearly 30 percent of the student body is affiliated with the military,
including active duty, veterans and their family members. She also said
that 52 percent of Purdue Global students are the first in their family
to pursue a higher education degree, and that 63 percent have a child or
other dependent.

Graduate
and undergraduate degrees
were awarded from the schools of Business
and Information Technology, Education, Health Sciences, Nursing, and the
College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
