FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The upcoming potential split of IPFW into separate universities is wreaking havoc on Indiana and Purdue Universities’ funding plans.
The Journal Gazette reports that both universities are trying to plan a new budget for the school, which is facing a vote Friday by Purdue trustees that could split it up permanently, in addition to their own schools.
It’s an effort to avoid duplicate funding. Unfortunately it’s making funding requests complicated, with a fiscal analysis and full budget request to the House Ways and Means Committee set for January.
The realignment proposal comes about due to a drop in enrollment at IPFW, which is currently running on a $2.8-million budget shortfall.
