Purdue Cal Child Center Staying Open

Share this post

Purdue Calumet says child care will continue at the Hammond campus. The university had said the Riley Child Center, which opened in 1992, was in danger of closing due to a lack of funds. Purdue Calumet officials say the facility will remain open, thanks to reallocated federal community development block grant funds pledged by Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott, Jr. Officials say declining enrollment at the center, which has capacity for up to sixty children, has led to a 40-to-60-thousand dollar annual deficit which the university can no longer afford to subsidize.
