Purdue University announced today that university administrator Timothy Sanders on Tuesday assumed a new role as Director of Purdue's newly established Northwest Indiana Engagement Office. Sanders' responsibilities will include building contacts with businesses, industry, governmental agencies and community leaders in northwest Indiana to promote workforce, business and economic development, while enhancing greater awareness of Purdue-provided technical assistance and research capabilities. Since 2009, Sanders has worked in Purdue's Office of Governmental Relations where he acted as a liaison between the university and government officials.
The opening of the Northwest Indiana Engagement Office follows similar Purdue initiatives established in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne areas. The Northwest Indiana Office has locations at Purdue North Central and Purdue Calumet.
